Who's Who

So now that the Ginn-DEI marriage is on the honeymoon how long before Theresa's talons dig deep? She has already gained tremendously by moving the whole operation into Ginn's garage and picking up Mark Martin with the unwavering sponsorship of the US Army. Bobby pretty much gave her full rein, but sources say he maintains ownership of the #01 and has also taken over the #15 and Paul Menard. Perhaps this merger will work and become an example of what future teams will do. The "New" NASCAR... 4 or 5 major teams? And I've not read or heard what [or if] the name of Ginn-DEI will become. At least the merger of Rosox left us with a catchy name. With all due respect to Dale Sr. I would hope the name remains.
Back at the Cottage... It's hard to believe that July 07 is about to end. My contracting business is so busy that I have lost track of everything and my head is spinning. I am behind schedule with one addition being held up due to an excavator that left me hanging for ten days, but that's finally completed so I can start the framing... then to top it off I had problems with an employee and finally had to let him go. This too set back the clock, but he has been replaced with a nice guy carpenter/drummer, but today, his first day on the job, was put on hold due to his family being hit by a flu virus. The weather has put a damper on things, literally and as of next week I am suppose to be starting another big family room addition, but that will be put on the back burner for at least 3 weeks. The good thing is... my customers are patient and understanding and this I can pat myself on the back for because I have established myself after over 25 years of this. I am also the designer/engineer so my desk and drafting table are backed up too. Maybe I need a merger!!!

I believe it will still be known as Dale Earnhardt Inc. And if anything it would be DEI/Ginn since Teresa has the most money. I also believe Ginn will be gone by the end of the year and DEI will be the 4-car team they have now, just the drivers will be different. And perhaps the 8, as I think they are keeping us in the dark about that. JMO

I hope it remains DEI and by the look of it that's how it will play out...I don't think Ginn will be around that long or at mosa minor voice in the whole operation...Good luck with the projects..it reminds me of when I ran my own trucks..to much to do and too little time...I give thanks everyday that my son in law and daughter have taken over most of that stuff...although I must admit I still have my fingers in there...I can't seem to stay away...

Maybe we should merge our blogs...Vrooming Eclectic?

I don't like the thought of DEI becoming something besides DEI. Poor Daddy Dale is probably turning over in his grave. Especially since Jr. did not get a part of his Daddy's company, how sad is that?

Well all I can say about your contracting business is, hang in there.
