What will Dale Jr. choose? The negotiations have started to go sour. This could mean that Dale Jr. will loose respect from many of his fans. Will he branch out his team that is the BUSCH series to the NEXTEL cup series. When he has the team going, will he give an invite Martin Truex Jr. and Paul Menard to join his new team. Will Dale Jr. choose the path of RCR?So, which path will Dale Jr. choose? Tell me what you think.

I hope it doesn't happen but if it does I think he will go to RCR for whatever his contract would be with them and then he would start a Nextel Team ...I don't think he will lose the respect of his fans to stick to what he feels is right.

See, I think that it will be a good idea for him to leave. Richard has already offered a contract to Dale Jr. to drive his dads car number. That would be a very good thing for him to do. He should start a team and race for RCR at the same time.

I can't believe RCR would offer JR. to drive a car with the #3 on it. That number should forever be retired IMHO. I'll be the first to admit that JR is not my fav driver, however that being said to jump ship from the family company is downright disrespectful and definitely a bad move fan wise. There are thousands of Dale Earnheart fans that would agree that just because he has the same name does not give him the right to drive under his daddy's number 3.He is in no way the same caliber of driver that his father was and I doubt ever will be. He needs to stop trying to fill Daddy's shoes and stick with #8. I am also not a fan of Dale Sr. but Iam a Nascar fan. Just my 2 cents.

I knew this question would come up someday, and my answer is going to really tick some people off, but i'm gonna give it anyway.

I hope he does leave DEI, and then nobody gives him a ride. If his last name wasn't Earnhardt, no team would give him a seat. He's a no talent driver who inherited all his fans because of his last name.

RCR has already given him a contract to drive the number 3 car. Now I will say, I was a fan of Jr. before Sr. died. I was a fan of both of them.

I'm going to get a little off of the subject, but how many people on ATS hate Jeff Gordon. I don't know why I hate him, I just do.

this next comment of mine is going to enflame even more fans of nascar, the best lesson Dale Earnhardt Sr. could have given Dale Jr., was to turn right instead of left.

Ok Aegisfang now that was a bit nasty.It could however explain JR.'s driving sometimes.It looks like he is scared and he should be. To answer galm 1- I am not much of a Jeff Gordan fan either. He is much to arrogant and comes of as just a playboy.His driving has slacked off lately too.My fav drivers are Matt Kenseth and Jimmy Johnson with Kasey Kahne as my fav Rookie.

I'm a huge Jr. fan, but I was a fan before Sr. died. I believe that Jr. is very over rated. There are a lot of fans that hate Jeff Gordon, We don't know why, we just do.

Blashphemy!

Of course, this coming from someone who isn't really a NASCAR fan. I do root for Gordon, but just to tick off a few certain people. (Don't worry, if you're reading this, it's not you, I guarantee it.)

But really, what has Junior done?

Jr. is a great drive, but I think that he is overrated. The whole, I hate Jeff Gordon, I just can't explain why I hate him, I just do. Anyway, Jr. hasn't done anything wrong. Did you all really think that Jr. was going to stay with DEI for the rest of his racing career?

Since Junior is a free agent after the current season, he may sign with DEI for another year. It would be nice if his step-mother would step down and let either Dale Jr. or one of the other Earnhardt kids run the team. The signing of Dale Jr. to RCR would mean mucho sponsorship bucks for RCR and his other two teams.

Dale Sr.'s children were promised DEI. There was no will left for wh gets DEI, so His wife gains control over DEI. We are not sure if it was promised to his kids, but it makes sence that the kids get DEI.

If I was Junebug, I would accept it because that sounds like a sweet ol' deal to me.

Which deal, The RCR deal or the DEI deal?

The DEI deal. That is because he would have a fifty-one to fourty nine stake of the DEI Empire.
