Ginn has A LOT OF MONEY.
Problem is that he is a smart guy who has lost money before in other business ventures, and he will NOT do that again in NASCAR.
Ginn will be the owner of record on the 01 car.
The 14's points will go to the 15 DEI car and Paul Menard. My guess is that the 01 and 15 car will be housed out of the Ginn garage complex which is larger than DEI's present facility and has more advanced equipment like the state of the art 7 point shaker rig.
DEI just got better, and Ginn gets to stay in racing without spending a million per week struggling to find sponsorship.
Too bad that all of this has happened AFTER Junior decided to go to Hendrick.
Junior's demands since his announcement have actually been met.
1. DEI has aquired Ginn and upgraded their ability to build more competitive equipment.
2. DEI also went into an engine development deal with Richard Childress Racing, and will have a better engine program.
The reason Junior left is because he wanted to fix DEI's deficiencies in the area of competition. DEI has now done that, but it turns out that they did it a couple of months too late to keep Dale Earnhardt Jr.
Ironic.
Great Post Mark... Dale Jr. would do it all over again, if that would be the only way to keep his Dad's dream come true. It had fell like a rock since 2004..
You hit the nail on the head...

OK Mark Martin is a good vetern racer, BUT HE NEEDS OT RETIRE.
Oh yes, Martin needs to retire. He is ahead of almost 20 drivers in the points who have 5 MORE RACES than Mark. Yes, this is simply a man that cannot get it done anymore.... get a life and dont comment on drivers you know nothing about. I noticed your a SMOKE fan. Ive been at the track and heard Tony Stewart away from the cameras. That guy is totally a jerk to his fans and I heard him cussing them out when all they were doing was waiting for an autograph.

Because Army probably said "Oh you signed Mark Martin! He better be driving our car or else were leaving"

HI guys
I think Army wanted to get someone that could win. Joe is a very safe driver. I believe Army wanted Martin to drive for them. But, last yaer Mark Martin had annouced that he would be driving part time in 07. So far he has been doing fine with driving part time. I believe now that he is driving for DEI, possibly he will get #8 for 2008.

Mark will stay in the 01 car. The 8 will not be at DEI next year. The 13 or 14 will replace it. The line up next year at DEI will be the 01, 1, 07 and the 13/14. Jr. will be driving a hendrick car with the 8 on the door next year. I would love to know how much letting that number go will net Teresa. It wasn't going to do her any good without Bud on the car with it. I have a sneaky feeling they have Jr. running R & D motors right now without saying anything to them about it.

Your right on the motors. He is being DEI's tester but what can he do about it he is still under contract. I will be so glad when he is out from under her orders,,
