It is not known what number Earnhardt will drive.Think about that for a second. There are some die hard NASCAR fans out there who dedicate their lives to associating themselves with a particular driver, and by extension his number. From what I've observed (and I do live in Kentucky) Earnhardt Jr.'s fans are about the most dedicated of them all. Let's suppose for a moment, that Little E (as I like to call him) does change his number. What does this mean to the fans?A whole new collection of camo hats?
A new Paint job maybe?
A trip back to the tattoo parlor for a touch up?
Good luck Jr. fans. It's going to be a tense couple of days.
