Rick Hendrick is sueing DEI for a non-payment of about 1.5 million dollars left over from the 3 million dollar engine contact buy out when DEI took over Ginn racing who was under contract to buy it's motors from Hendrick.
You know, eight years ago I would have never thought that Rick Hendrick would have any cause to sue DEI over anything. But then again eight years ago I never thought Dale Jr would ever leave DEI either.
My how things have changed.
Update Dec. 29, 2008
Well DEI has repsonded to the lawsuit by stating that it is Bobby Ginn that is responsible for that debt and not DEI. Apparently it was in the paperwork of the DEI/Ginn Racing merge agreement. Go here for the full article.
