Announcement Expected Wednesday: Sources: Dale Jr. to be 88

Sep 15, 2007 Full story: Charlotte.com 229

“I've done about as good as I can do about narrowing it down and what not”

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will drive the No. 8 next season. In fact, he'll drive two of them.

During a news conference Wednesday in Dallas, Hendrick Motorsports officials will announce Earnhardt Jr. will drive the No. 88 beginning in 2008, the Observer has learned from multiple sources.

The announcement will complete the puzzle to the courtship of the services of NASCAR's most popular driver.

Hendrick officials, as has been the case throughout the process, declined to comment.

Robert Yates Racing currently fields the No. 88 in the Nextel Cup Series and would have to relinquish the number for Hendrick to use it. Yates co-owner Doug Yates did not immediately return a call for comment Friday. Read more

Hey Jrw, take a deep breath hon. I had to take a bunch of them. This forum is really getting out of control. Just gave me more motivation to set up our own little thing and then we can (hopefully) all make plans to get together at the beginnng of next season.
Mindy.....
Do you have any thoughts as to how to do this? I figure I could set up a private Myspace acct. tonight for us to talk about getting together for a race or two.
Hi Happy. I talked to TB last night and he said whatever works. But we have to plan it for when he's off. He'll probably call again tonight so I'll tell him to figure out his schedule so we can start from there. I don't know if he'll be on here again before he leaves.

Not really I worked with Eddie when Bobby ran his own team but I mostly fished with Neil, Bobby and Dale, those were the good ole days when drivers did not act like movie stars I haven't been to a race in 25 years and would go if you payed me because the fans were horrific. I drive sportscars now, just for fun of course and still fish with Bobby alot he's good people.
Uh, ok.

I have many a hater that comes to find me but they know better on my thread!Ignore the nasty ones as much as you can,looks better that way and it is easier to be the cleaner that way when their is only one nasty instead of many responding in the same notion!lol!;-)Thought of the day:"Never put yourself at their same level,your side will never even out because they are holding it on higher ground,You goal is always in the middle"
Got it! Will do that (hopefully)!(smiles)

They are not JR. fans so I don't know why they have to come on here and ruin it for others. They sound like a bunch of 13 year old kids that have nothing else to do.

No Kidding, lol! Their attention span won't be long enough to hang around too long, hopefully! Too much nastiness around. They'll go away eventually.:)

Hi Jrw! Well I'm going to look on the bright side of this..... at least I finally set up a private myspace page for us if we ever want to use it to get each others contact info for meeting each other, holiday cards, etc. I don't know if you have a myspace account, but if you do, then we can all work through that. Whatever you do don't post it here. That's why I made it private. Just let me know if I'm on here one night or day if you're going to add to the friends and I'll add you in. I'm gonna let the furry people out soon, have a good night!:D

Naw, we're not. Most everyone on here regularly is pretty nice. I am a fan of many racers.

Are you actually in Stone Mountain? That sounds wierd, lol.@ Stone Mountain, I mean. My brother got married there at one of the big estates/gardens. Incredibly beautiful place!
