IMPOSTER WREAKS HAVOC WITH DALE EARNHARDT, JR.
LOOK ALIKE POSED AS CREW CHIEF
Mooresville, NC- A six month long investigation has uncovered the real reason behind Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s disappointing final season with Dale Earnhardt, Inc.
Throughout the 2007 season, many fans speculated that Earnhardt, Jr.'s stepmother, Theresa, was behind the bad luck which plagued NASCAR's most popular driver. Those speculations proved unfounded with the discovery that an imposter had been posing as Junior's crew chief, Tony Eury, Jr. The imposter has been identified as Larry, the Cable Guy.
Members of Junior's former DEI crew were shocked to learn of the imposter, but no one was as shocked as Junior himself.
"The man is my cousin," Junior told reporters. "We grew up together. You'd think I'd know my own cousin." Other Earnhardt family members said that they, too, were taken aback by the uncanny resemblance of the imposter to Tony, Jr. Side by side photos show the strong resemblance between the two men
Martin Truex, Jr., Dale Jr.'s former DEI teammate said upon seeing the photos, "Man, they sure do look alike, but obviously the imposter couldn't "Git r done"."
Team officials at Hendrick Motorsports, which signed Jurnior after his much publicized split with DEI, told reporters that they have instituted security measures that will guarantee that it is indeed Tony Eury, Jr. on the pit box . A Hendrick spokesman refused to comment on what those security measures are.
