The number 3 is not owned by Childress, but by NASCAR . The 3 was famous before Earnhardt with RC himself and Jr. Johnson . Austin is a class dude and RC's grandson, he'll do the number justice.
Don't like it- I think that if they let him drive the 3, change the font in respect. I know that no numbers are retired, and the 3 is owned by Childress, but change the font to show some class. I don't think RCR has the same atmosphere of loyalty and family that it once did before Mike Dillon took over. Kinda ironic, seeing how there's technically more "family" there than ever. Everything changes...
They should just let that number alone unless Richard would ever hire Jr, No ones ever gonna compare up to Big E, plus there just adding more pressure to the Kid. The Press is bad enough.
Nascar will do anything for ratings right now.
I was never a Sr fan but I'd like the idea better if Jr was using the number 3.
