Earnhardt to have new number

Dale Earnhardt Jr. blames his step-mother Teresa Earnhardt, the owner of Dale Earnhardt Inc., for not allowing the No. 8 to move with him to Hendrick Motorsports next season. Earnhardt Jr. said negotiations broke down when Teresa asked for part of the licensing revenue, along with wanting the number back after he retired. "She either feels too personal about the number, or the rift between me and her is too personal," Earnhardt Jr. said Saturday. "I'm not going to sit here and get personal about this. It's upsetting as hell and unfortunate, but that's just what happens sometimes."

Well it shows all along who the puppet master has been in the Earnhardt clan. Although if she was actually any good at pulling the strings she would have reacted quicker during the final lap at Daytona.

We can now refer to her company as TEI, because there is no more Dale Earnhardt left in it. It's crazy the lengths she'll go to profit from, err, honor her dead husband.

For SR to put up with her, she must have given one hell of a BJ.
