Dale Earnhardt Jr., the auto racing star. won’t have Anheuser-Busch Co.’s (BUD) Budweiser beer as a sponsor when he joins Hendrick Motorsports next season because of the team’s existing agreements. Existing contractual obligations in place for the 2008 Nascar Sprint Cup season prevent the team from establishing a relationship with Budweiser.
