Best Answer

Dale Jr. wanted to keep the #8 when he made his move to Hendrick Motorsports in 2008, but his former team owner wouldn't allow it. Junior originally drove for Dale Earnhardt Inc. (DEI), who was owned by Junior's stepmother Teresa Earnhardt. She refused to release the #8, so Junior chose #88.
