Sources at Dale Earnhardt Incorporated Racing have confirmed that vice president Ty Norris has resigned effective immediately. Norris' decision came in response to Teresa Earnhardt juggling the team's upper management. The restructuring apparently moved Norris to less significant role at DEI.

Norris has been with DEI since 1996, and is credited for keeping the company functioning after the death of Dale Earnhardt in a last lap crash at the Daytona 500 in 2001.

An official announcement is expected sometime Wednesday afternoon.
