List of numbers requested to NASCAR August 28, 2007

Posted by claireblang in NASCAR, Rumors.

Here’s a TIDBIT: Regarding the use of the numbers by Hendrick Motorsports for use by Dale Junior – I have heard now that NASCAR has received an “informal request” for a list of numbers for Hendrick Motorsports for use asking them to “hold” a list of numbers. Nothing “official” but a list of numbers including #51, 58, 81, 82, #38.


1. Kees - August 28, 2007

the 38 is at Yates witih Gilliland

2. tina doran - August 28, 2007

please let it be 38…… i can live with 81, but 38 would be great

3. No3sdman - August 28, 2007

Whats up with 51 and 58????

4. LuvnJr - August 28, 2007

I like the 81! Easier for those with tattoos to fix!

5. karen - August 28, 2007

I think they should request the use of fractions…8 1/2 would be cool…Any word on the sponsor?

6. Pat - August 28, 2007

Could some of those numbers be for trucks or Busch cars? just a thought.

7. Theresa - August 28, 2007

The 51 and 58 would combine Hendrick family tradition with Earnhardt tradition.

The 5 from Hendricks car and the 1 (the first car number run by DEI) and the 8 is for obvious reasons. The amount of numbers proves just one thing as far as I’m concerned. They’re NOT ready to have people know exactly what they are doing yet.

8. Janet - August 28, 2007

I would LOVE the 38 – perfect! Honoring both his Dad and Grandfather – besides, Jr won 2 Busch championships driving the 3 so its his number too!

9. ~*~Laura~*~ - August 29, 2007

The #38 would be perfect for Jr.. I hope he can get it! I like the idea of the #81 but I look at it as the #8 from DEI and the #1 of Truex from DEI. I just think that keeps him kinda connected to them because he drove that number with them. If he’s going to make a fresh start then lets start with a number to honor his dad and jr. not anything that he used at DEI! Just my thoughts!

I’m stoked!!! To me it doesn’t matter which number he uses or who his sponsor is….I just can’t wait until 08!!! Rock on Junior!

11. Shelly - September 8, 2007

Any number would be great…….but #38 would be the best! Good Luck and looking forward to the announcement of number and sponsorship.

12. Dave - September 9, 2007

What does anyone think about “88”
Think about this Rudd is retiring so if they could get the number it could be used to market the familar indentity of the number 8 & Jr.
Something like this an Earnhardt going for the 8th Earnhardt championship in 08
Just a thought, If your a real Earnhardt fan you will love whatever they come up with as long as JR is in a car and able to challange for the lead and wins.
Great Drive @ Richmond last night!
