Was this ever in doubt?

The bigger question is how much longer Dale Jr. is going to stay with DEI (especially in light of his struggles this year and the fact that he's publically stated he wants to eventually go over to Childress and drive the #3)

I don't know how serious the discussion was but reports said Rousch wanted him to take over the seat in Mark Martin's car next year. As soon as these reports were made public DEI got busy and signed him up.

Penske also wanted him for the 2 car next season.

In other news DEI is most likely giving Micheal Waltrip the shaft whether he makes the chase or not.

Same story as last year. I'd wait and see. When I goto the September Dover race, they have big sales on merchandise whose drivers/sponsors aren't going to be back next year.

As has been said was serious rumor Truex was going to sign with another team.

As much as it would be interesting to see Junior drive the #3 car. I don't think he will leave DEI unless something happens with chance2.

Ha - we need to use hyphens people! Re-signs. I was wondering why the hell Truex would resign (quit) DEI.
