MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Junior says he is joining Hendrick Motorsports. The step announced Wednesday moves him one step closer toward the championship that has eluded him while driving for his late father's company.
The decision ends five weeks of recruiting for NASCAR's most popular driver. He became a free agent May 10 when he said he would leave DEI at the end of this season.
His criteria for a new team included finding a place he could win championships, and Hendrick is the perfect fit. Hendrick has won six championships, and has ten wins through 14 points races this season.
