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

There are 229 comments on the Charlotte.com story from Sep 15, 2007, titled Announcement Expected Wednesday: Sources: Dale Jr. to be 88. In it, Charlotte.com reports that:

“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

Nasty gram? LOL! How old are you? Who says nasty gram? How lame.
I bet when you were banned the people on this site were also relieved.
Me thinks that he was trying to speak on your level. Problem is that he just couldn't -as much as he tried to- act that immature. "Nasty Gram was as far as he could go. to get to your level he would break his back. You got your head too far up your butt looking for your little balls. I would just love to call a favor and find you. You are getting to be worth the trouble. No that is not a threat. A threat would be the last thing you heard

Hi! It turned out good. I used some for sandwiches and the rest was a snack dipping in oil w/spices and herbs. I hope you are doing well today.

If all you Jr. lovers can't takea little flak I feel for you. He will be the 3rd best driver on the team next year and might get 1 win. Just because his daddy was a great driver doesn't make Jr. one. By the way I am a Ricky Rudd fan for 20 years and my 88 hat is banned to the closet if Jr. gets that number.

This might be an off the wall comment, but..couldn't dale get the # 38, as a possibility?. Since sadler isn't the msot popular.

I also want to comment that Dale, isn't his dad. So we can't expect him to be.

Another example of this would be The petty family.

Yes, we can take a little flak, but where does anyone say he is the best driver? We don't care! He is our best driver and that is all that matters. Hell, there are alot of great drivers that have never won a title, that does not mean their fans like them any less. Believe me dude, if you think you are the first to say that you are sadly mistaken. OH, By the way you might as well put the hat away beacause Junior is getting the 88 and we would'nt want you wearing it anyway.
