Michael Waltrip and DEI Parting Ways

As many suspected, today it was announced that Michael Waltrip won’t race for DEI (Dale Earnhardt Inc) next year. I’ve always rooted for Michael to do well; he’s such a great spokesman for the sport and is really generous with his time for the fans. My daughters have a fledgling interest in NASCAR (thanks to my brainwashing); the one who love Michael is going to be upset about this. On the upside, those Napa #15 hats might be worth something now. Luckily, Dale Jr is her “backup” and I think we’ll have him around for a long time.
