Everyone has a woulda, shoulda, coulda idea of what Jr. should do be doing or should of done. In hind site maybe he could of done better with Richard Childress instead of "Team Hendrick". Anyway its too late, too much time has been wasted and even if he did {JR} get with people he could relate its probably too late. Richard has been grooming his Grandson, who already has been driving a #3 dirt black latemodel{even sponsered by Mom and Pops} and now has moved into the Craftsman Truck Division. When he moves into Nascar my bet Richard will give that number to him. Its Richards number to do with as he pleases. This deal next weekend is just for money. T shirts,keyrings models cars, baby boots anything they can print up with the number 3 one more time and get some fan money. If you dont have something with a #3 on it and an Dale in it you must have been sleeping like "Rip Van Winkle" Send your money to the Red Cross to help those lives ruined by the oil spill.

that goes to show that even Childress would let the #3 be disgraced when money is involved

All of Senior fans would of been mad as hell of someone other then Jr would of raced the 3. So I think childress did the right thing for the fans.

i'm a Sr's fan and i'm mad as hell that he is driving it. all the fans keep saying it's not fair to compare him to Sr and let him have his own identity, but he jumps in his dad's car with same number and same paint sceme. i hope he runs well because i'd hate to see it disgraced. if he disgraces it i hope all the fans throw beer can at him

Why? It's no more Junior's car than it is anyone elses? Seems that fans should be mad as hell that Childress would put Junior in it to disgrace it, rather than someone with the talent to perhaps drive it to a win. Wouldn't it play better for the number 3 to be in victory lane? How likely is Junior to put it there?

....not so much.

I dont think any Dale Sr fans would care if someone else else drove the number #3 other then Jr. Just put someone in it that will give it a good respectable drive.

And Childress can do whatever he wants with the #3, get over it. Dale Sr. was my freaking hero and will never be forgotten but it is time to move on.
