Ginn Saw Merger With DEI As Only Way To Keep Team Competitive

D-E-I will immediately add the number-oh-one Chevrolet, which is co-driven by Mark Martin and rookie Aric Almirola. It will take the season points from Ginn's number-14 team and apply them to D-E-I's number-15 entry of Paul Menard.

Dale Earnhardt Junior will continue to drive the number-eight Chevrolet for D-E-I for the remainder of the season.

In a telephone interview today with The Associated Press, Ginn said his team could have survived without merging, but they would have wound up taking on lesser sponsors. Ginn says "We would have had to continue to cut costs, and that is disgraceful to me."
