NASCAR star Earrnhardt parts ways with Budweiser

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Dale Earnhardt Junior will definitely have a new sponsor in 2008.       Hendrick Motorsports says long-term contractual commitments to the team's current sponsors will preclude Budweiser as primary sponsor of Earnhardt's car when he joins the organization next season. 

After deciding to leave DEI, a team founded by his late father, Junior signed to race for Hendrick. But primary sponsorship of his team remains undecided.

The Hendrick announcement says no timetable has been established for a decision on the issue.

Earnhardt has a personal services contract with Budweiser that runs through 2008, but the beer company is reportedly talking with other teams about sponsorship.
