Hopefully, its not just a rumor as Dale Jr. would bring a lot of media attention as he is NASCAR's poster boy according to the recent cover article on him in Sports Illustrated.

See ya in the dirt!

Funny how the rumor went from Harvick to Jr, running with RG!
The Dale Jr. in a Geiser Rumor has been Floatin for a while.

I was just looking at RG's web page and under the scheduled races it had the Baja 1000. The interesting thing was that for "Team" it had Robby Gordon Racing instead of Richard Childress (SP?) Racing and under the car it had the #31 Cingular wireless Chevy. Has anybody heard if Cingular is going to sponsor him?

See ya in the dirt!

I think Cingular supports RG in whatever he races (INDY 500)

The new Geiser truck is a Ford. Jr is on a strict Chevy contract. The reality of that happening is slim to none.

A little motor swap & emblem change, Insta cheby. Kinda like the switch from toyota to ford. I'm pretty shure He can find a bowtie race motor laying around somewhere.

I'm sure Dale Jr. doesn't worry about a race motor. He has a fullshop that I'm sure is capable of building one. Just a matter of finding a truck. I am thinking he will share driving duties with RG. Harvick sounded cool....Dale Jr. sounds like someone is using their brain a lil more. Chevy needs to get back in the game anyhow. They have been out for way too long!!

If I remember correctly Chevy was involved in 2 of the longest races just over 1 year ago. The Nevada 2000 and the Baja 2000.

I Believe that Robby Gordon and Kevin Harvick are racing the Vortec trail blazers, that Ragland raced in 2000. They have been testing one of the trucks the past few weeks while the other one was on display at the San Diego County Fair. Also heard that Childress might be riding.

As Far as Robby's truck, Marty Coyne has rented it for Henderson and Primm.

It was announced a while ago on Inside NASCAR that RG and KH would be doing the Baja 1000 this year.

BRING ON THE BIG NAMES!!

This is going to be so entertaining to watch what unfolds. I know these guys probably don't take it as serious as us? At least they are smart enough to pretend that it's all in fun!! My point is I think that 30% of all the drivers in each class can beat these guys that have "never raced off road". Look back to when the Unser's raced at Anaheim in the Mickey Thompson series or look at the current ex Indy car guys. For most of us all we know about racing is in the dirt and it's different scenarios. It will be time to break out the toilet paper to clean up the mess and dry out some eye's at the end of this years Baja 1000! Bring on the big names!!

I'd rather see Mark Martin in a Viagra TT then Dale Jr. I saw Jr at the local hobby shop a while back (California 500?) and mentioned to him about dirt racing and he didn't sound interested

You guys are dreaming, Robby will not be in one of the Vortec Trailblazers. The motors are unattainable, they were one off, to build a motor would be millions and no one likes Robby that much. Those trailblazers are museum pieces. The design was strictly for an inline 6, no way to fit a v-8 without re-building the entire truck.
