RCR is going to let Austin Dillon use the #3 for his SC ride. Is it cool or sacrilegious? That number carried some heavy weight, meant a lot to a lot of people. Definitely gets you feeling nostalgic seeing it in the press photos though.
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...
