BULLETIN – BREAKING NEWS – DEI Sets Line Up September 7, 2007Posted by claireblang in Breaking News, Drivers, NASCAR.
Hey I’m in the garage at Richmond and there’s a news flash tidbit I wanted to get to you immediately:
Regan Smith to take the wheel of DEI’s fourth entry; Mark Martin and Eric Almirola to take over the No. 8 – Dale Earnhardt, Inc.’s four-car lineup has been settled for the 2008 season, with Regan Smith being the latest driver to join the organization. Smith is the final piece to the driver corps that includes Martin Truex Jr., Paul Menard, Mark Martin and Aric Almirola. “Our lineup is a perfect blend of veteran leadership and youthful promise,” said Max Siegel, president of global operations for Dale Earnhardt, Inc. “The addition of Mark Martin’s leadership and his desire to mentor our drivers is huge for us. Paul Menard and Martin Truex Jr. have been with our company for several years and we have confidence and great expectations in both of them, which allows us to further develop our future with two rookie drivers in Regan and Aric.”
