And The Winner Is Hendrick Motorsports
I have to take a moment away from frogs and Williamsburg, Va entries to share my excitement in Nascar's biggest news of the year –– Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be racing for Hendrick Motorsports starting the 2008 season. Wow. Wow. Wow.
Hendrick racing is one of the "superpowers" of Nascar. With Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Casey Mears as teammates how can you go wrong. I know people want to see different drivers and teams win, but I just want to see some good racing. Yes I love seeing Gordon and Jimmy win, but what racing is what it is all about.
I have always liked Jr, but as a Jeff Gordon fan it has always been a huge "no-no". But now the times are changing. After all there still is Tony Stewart to root against. And even a bigger bonus is Kyle Busch will be leaving Hendrick. Good riddance I say.
Now the question is what will the fans at Talladaga do? Can't really throw beer cans at your own teammate.
