Hard to believe ??

#88 unsponsored for 13 races: NASCAR's most popular driver will enter the 2013 season with 13 unsponsored races. But team owner Rick Hendrick doesn't seem concerned that Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s #88 has open inventory. Hendrick said there has been plenty of interest from sponsors and that he is more concerned with finding a match that will work beyond 2013. "We've got a lot of good opportunities," Hendrick said during Wednesday's stop of the Sprint Media Tour. "The way we're positioned, the car is covered until the end of the summer. I don't have a deadline [for a deal]. I'm not looking at a timeline. I'm looking at the right deal." Hendrick said he was close on two or three deals, but "we haven't put any line in the sand." It was announced last year that National Guard would be on Earnhardt's car for 20 races in 2013. Diet Mountain Dew was contracted for 16 races in 2012 with PepsiCo having the sponsorship rights for 20 races.

Not really hard to believe. They are pushing for a multi year sponsor, not a fill in for just a few races. If and when they decide to give up on landing a whale of a sponsor, they will fill those 13 races in with another sponsor in a heartbeat.

Re: Hard to believe ??

Perhaps Junior could use some of his investments to sponsor his car. I've seen where Jimmie Johnson has done it with his Foundation. Money is money no matter which pocket it comes out of.

Re: Hard to believe ??

I think they wanted to lump all the unsponsored races together into 1 sponsorship, but that now seems unlikely. I really don't think Joonya or Rick is worried about it...

I think it is a sign of the ecomomy. It is expensive & companies do not allocate money like they did 10 yrs ago.

Re: Hard to believe ??

They've had lots of one or two race offers but are looking for someone to take over the whole 13 races.
