Jr's decision to leave DEI

Okay, who can honestly they DIDN'T see this one coming? Jr's been in contract negotiations for over a year with DEI. No contract ever takes that long to work out! The fact that he had to even negotiate anything at all blows my mind! His father brought him to DEI for the purpose of one day handing the business over to his children, making it a family owned business, but due to unreconcilable differences the chances of that ever happening are slim to none. I know there are two sides to every story, and I know there are a lot of things that Jr did wrong along the way too, but I believe more could've been done at DEI to keep the "family business" alive.

I'm glad that he is leaving. He just wasn't happy there and he stated that. I would like to see him go to a team where he can accomplish his goals of winning races and championships.
