I’ll be quick folks. The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Dale Earnhardt Jr. will announce he’s leaving DEI (Dale Earnhardt Inc.) at the end of the 2007 season. A press conference has been scheduled for tomorrow morning, at 11:00 am. This is history before our eyes ….

If he elects to become a free agent, Earnhardt could certainly command the highest salary in NASCAR history. I’ll continue to research this story tonight …. look for my updated blog, by early morning.
