After new deal with Sony, Budweiser sponsorship still in limbo for Jr.
OAKVILLE, Calif. -- Dale Earnhardt Jr. has signed an endorsement deal with Sony Electronics, but he still isn't saying what role longtime sponsor Budweiser will have with him when he joins Hendrick Motorsports next season.
"I'm a big electronics fan. I'm a big computer guy. It's products I can dig," Earnhardt told reporters Thursday at a winery in the heart of California's Napa Valley. He will be competing on Sunday in the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway in nearby Sonoma.
