Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kelley expressed interest in acquiring ownership of the No. 8 trademark. Speculation ran wild among NASCAR fans, with rumors swirling about new paint schemes at JR Motorsports and a potential line of vintage gear. However, Earnhardt clarified that he had no intention of flooding the NASCAR ecosystem with retro No. 8 merchandise. Instead, he envisioned tasteful and limited releases, such as select shirts and hats.

He also shared that they are looking for the existing teams to partner with rather than being their own team again. He further shed light on the situation of the future as well like they can’t go back after a decade of racing after investing a huge amount of money into the sport.
