It's Official - JR is going to Hendricks!

Dale Earnhardt JR and Rick Hendrick announced today that JR will be driving for Hendrick in 2008 and beyond.

This is a great move for JR's career. He said that he wanted to win championships. I think for his sake he went to the right place.

It is not clear what car number JR will be driving. Hendrick did say that he would listen to what DEI had to say if they wanted to give up the #8. Chances of that happening are pretty slim.

The internet is "all a buzz" about JR fans leaving JR because of the Gordon "thing". Whatever! If you are a JR fan, then your a JR fan.

And Kyle Busch released a statement saying that he and Hendrick could not come to an agreement on a contract, so that Hendrick agreed to let him go. That tells me that Hendrick did not boot him out to make room for JR. But who knows.

I don't see Jr. fans leaving... some will throw hissy fits for sure but it'll all settle down when his "08" season shows big improvements.
