As the world turns for "E"...

Dale Earnhardt Jr. didn't mince words when asked what it would take to get him to re-sign with the Nextel Cup organization his father built.
"I want majority ownership, basically," Earnhardt Jr. said for the first time during media day at Daytona International Speedway.

Earnhardt Jr.'s contract with Dale Earnhardt Inc. expires at the end of the 2007 season. Negotiation on a new deal began in the middle of 2006, with ownership of the company a major sticking point. Asked if stepmother Teresa Earnhardt, who inherited sole ownership of the company when Dale Earnhardt was killed on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500, was willing to budge, Earnhardt Jr. said, "We'll see."

I think this is a 'no-brainer' for DEI.....he makes all the money for DEI besides the "3" still selling memorabilia. He deserves to have say on the future of DEI....he is the future. Not that I am a big 'Jr' fan or for that a big NASCAR fan but this seems a little dumb. I feel this drama will continue to play out for another month or two....heck it sales for NASCAR to have a little feud and battle for control. Then step-mommy and son will work it out and they all live happy.

Thoughts anyone?
