Hendrick Motorsports officials have scheduled a press conference for Wednesday, Sept. 19, to officially announce Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s car number and primary sponsorship package for the 2008 season.
The press conference, which is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. ET, will take place in the Dallas Convention Center. Coincidentally, PepsiCo Inc. officials are in town next week as they are having their annual meetings in Dallas.

It is expected that Amp energy drink, an offshoot of PepsiCo product Mountain Dew, and National Guard will combine to sponsor NASCAR's most popular driver next season.

While the sponsor combination may be known, there is still speculation surrounding what number Earnhardt Jr. will drive next season since he will be unable to take his No. 8 with him to his new team after his current organization, Dale Earnhardt Inc., prevented such a move. Nonetheless, both Earnhardt Jr. and team owner Rick Hendrick have said that they expect the number 8 to be involved in some fashion, with the latest speculation pointing towards the No. 88 which is currently used by Robert Yates Racing.
