Heard on XM tonight that they've officially announced the merger and the new company will be called Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabatas.  It's funny how Felix keeps hanging in there.  No decision yet about which make of car they will run, but I'm sure this is a way for Ganassi to escape the quickly fading interest in racing by Dodge.

Personally, I'm glad to see DEI to this and I'm hopeful the two teams are sucessful.  Drivers named so far are Truex, Montoya and Armirola with a "4th driver to be named later."  Sure hope it is Regan Smith.  After that run at Talladega, he deserves a chance.

Pretty sure that they'll be running the bow tie next year.  It is funny how Felix's name keeps hanging on there and that new name is a mouth full.

This is because Felix Sabates still owns a minority share in Ganassi's (I guess Ganassi and Earnhardt's now) race team; in fact, Sabates founded the team as SABCO in the mid-1990s.
