Speculation swirls around Earnhardt Jr. announcementBy Terry Blount and David Newton
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is expected to announce Thursday morning that he will leave Dale Earnhardt Inc. after this season and possibly form his own Nextel Cup team, sources told ESPN.com on Wednesday night.
Earnhardt will discuss his future during a news conference Thursday at JR Motorsports, the Mooresville, N.C., racing shop that houses the Busch Series team Earnhardt owns.
Sources close to the situation said Wednesday night that Earnhardt may start a new two-car Nextel Cup team next season at JR Motorsports. Martin Truex Jr. would drive one car and Earnhardt could drive the other, but Earnhardt might keep his options open and go to another team.

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.
