    I say it will be DLP. They are headquartered in Dallas, have been involved in NASCAR thru Hall of Fame Racing, and after HOF announcing they are going w/ Toyota, they may have a desire to stay on a Chevy. I don't have any inside info, just pure speculation here.

    DLP isn't a big enough household name for Dale Jr. I look for it to be something like Mountain Dew or Visa . His sponser will also have somethings to do with the younger crowd. More fan friendly EQUALS more money.

    It's definitely going to be PepsiCo products. I'm guessing the #81 with Mt. Dew as the primary.

    Amp would be a good sponsor for Jr. And the National Gaurd as well.

    On a side note, it was announced today that Kasey Kahne will be sponsored by Budweiser next season. The Budwieser Dodge.... just doesn't sound right.

    #9 Bud Car

    88 Mountain Dew and-or Amp Energy (one of two energy drinks marketed under the Mountain Dew label) Chevy, with additional sponsorship from the Guard as reported earlier.

    Casey Mears takes over the 5 with sponsorship rolling over from this season.

    Why do people still keep falling back on Visa? Nobody significant from that brand was interested in being the primary sponsor of a NASCAR team.

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible

    If Nascar or Yates reportedly balked at giving the #38 to Hendrick why is there no issue with the #88 switching as well?
