    Jr. to Hendrick?

    Just saw this on ESPN website. Good news if it's true...well good for Jr. and fans, maybe not so good for the sport. Dominance by a team does not always lead to good ratings. We'll see.

    Well I guess we will find out tomorrow if this rumor holds any truth. I don't mind Hendrick as a team I just can't stand Jimmy Johnson

    Re: Jr. to Hendrick?

    To add to this Kyle Bush is rumored to be wanting out of his contract. So if that is true then Jr would be driving the #5 next season!

    It really could be interesting to see what this kind of team could do if it was firing on all cylinders. Like others have said it will be strange (if true) to have to root for a team that has Gordon on it! That and if he didn't drive the #8 - that would take some getting used to. (hopefully he'll keep 8 instead of changing to 5, if nothing else he does have family history with 8)
    On another note if it leads to a Jr. championship year I'm all for it!
    If nothing else it will pull me into the sport even more just to see what becomes off all of it.

    My guess is Hendrick but who knows. If it is Hendrick they sure kept it under the table well.

    It would probably be best for NASCAR if the Gordon/Jr mini-rivalry continued but, on the other hand, a Jr. championship would be great for the sport too.

    I'm a Gordon fan who never cheered for Jr. but certainly respected his ability to race. Welcome aboard I say.

    Why does Kyle Bush want out? Seems like he has a good thing going.

    That is what I thought, but I went over to NASCAR.COM and it was rumored that he wanted out. I'm not sure what to believe! If anything I figured Casey Mears would be out and that is how Jr. could race with Hendrick...

    Re: Jr. to Hendrick?

    If Jr. was going to change numbers, I'd rather it was to 3, but there's no way 3's going to Hendrick. So in this case I'd rather him stay with the 8, and between him and Hendrick I think they have enough coin between the two of them to buy out the number.

    I rather doubt that they will be able to buy the #8 since that is DEI's # DEI wants to have a 3-4 car team and that would just mean that DEI would then have to search for a new number. I just can't see them giving up the rights to the #8

    You're probably right on the assessment, but can you imagine what it would be like for someone to sit in the #8 after it's been vacated? Unless DEI pulls in a stud to fill that number, that's an awful lot of pressure for a youngin' to face, not only following in the footsteps of someone like Jr. but also resentment from the fans. It's not going to be like Truex filling in the #1 or whoever they find to take over the #15. The #8 is as much a family number as the #3, and if Jr. doesn't want the #3 he should at least be able to keep the #8 IMO.
