    Helton out of Nascar, Into DEI?

    Jayski's is reporting that the rumor that Mike Helton is going to quit Nascar as the president and go to DEI to run the company is a done deal here is the blub from the newspaper The Winston-Salem Journal.

    > There is validity to the long-running reports that NASCAR president Mike Helton's name is once again in the hat to take over Dale Earnhardt Inc., according to top NASCAR sources. Owner Teresa Earnhardt has asked Helton to take over running the company built by the late six-time Winston Cup champion, according to sources. It is unclear how interested Helton might be in such a position or how such a move might change the power structure inside the stock-car racing sanctioning body

    I wonder how that plays into Jr.'s decision not to sign a contract yet?

    Helton said today that he wasn't asked to head the company, that he hasn't even been contacted by Teresa about it and that he is happy working for NASCAR. Now you watch, next year he will head DEI. Aint that the way it works?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" -- Steve Parker

    I f you watched Dave Dispain on wind tunnel, the talk show on speed (call in or email questions or opinions), he said Jayski has a great track record on reporting this stuff that ain't suppose to be true and turns out it does in fact happen.

    so Ilikai, bet your right........that would be a first for you
