    If you don't already know, Michael Waltrip opted not to renew his contract with DEI. He cited a lack of team direction as the cause for his decision. Apparently, they won't tell him if Eury jr would be his crew cheif or not.

    DEI better get its collective head out of it's butt, or else.

    This is the true statement. DEI has opted NOT to renew MW's contract. Rumor has it that Truex Jr. is also NOT getting a contract to race for DEI next season also. Something about racing for another team. Still waiting to find info on this one.

    Have you guys heard any rumors that the number 8 car may be leaving DEI to race for RCR team? :eek1: :thinking:

    theres always been rumors jr would go to RCR. Truex Jr is going to move up to cup in the #1 car next yr, dont know who will sponsor it though, and they said that NAPA will probably go with mikey wherever he goes.

    Truex is signed. This is the car he has driven in Cup when he races:

    Jr. is under contract to DEI for awhile. He has "talked" to RCR about driving the #3 car, but I think it'll be awhile before that happens.

    They did say that Bass Pro Shops would follow Truex Jr. to Nextel cup.
