After Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the July 2nd, 2010 Daytona Nationwide Series Race in the famous #3 Wrangler Car in Daytona Florida, Dale Jr. made the comment after the race that he was done driving the #3 car and would never again drive a car with a #3 on it. It has now been almost 10 years since Dale Jr’s father Dale Earnhardt Sr. was killed at the 2001 Daytona 500, and there has never been another #3 car in the Sprint Series since, and the fans are longing to see the #3 car back on the track preferrably with Dale Earnhardt Jr. driving it, but for whatever reason Dale Jr. will not agree to do it at this time.
Nascar needs to have the number #3 car back on the track with Dale Jr. behind the wheel driving for RCR Racing, because everytime Dale Jr. is behind the wheel of a #3 car, Dale Jr. seems to drive harder than he ever has with his #88 Amp Energy Chevrolet, and it could possibly mean Dale Jr. being competitive again to finally compete for his first championship, and everyone knows that if Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his first championship that would be huge for nascar and nascar fans alike.
It is no secret that Dale Jr. is nascars most popular driver, but it seems lately that the most popular driver isn’t all that happy and isn’t as competitive as he should be, but if Nascar and Richard Childress could get Dale Jr. behind the wheel of the #3 car again just look at the ratings boost nascar would receive because right now ticket sales are down, and nascar viewer ratings are down, but if the nascar fans could see the most popular driver behind the wheel of the #3 car that would be huge for nascar as well as the nascar fans.
Chevrolet would benefit from that partnership as well because you know that people would be dying to buy a Chevrolet Impala SS just because of the new found popularity that GM would receive because of Dale Jr. driving the famous #3 Impala SS. GM could sell a Dale Earnhardt Jr. Edition #3 Impala SS and you know that dedicated die hard Dale Earnhardt and Dale Jr fans would just be begging to purchase one of these vehicles. Dale Jr. and Wrangler are already making money from the 1 time deal of Dale Jr. driving that #3 Wrangler car in the July Nationwide Race at Daytona, but just imagine what kind of money could be made if Wrangler and Dale Jr. could extend that partnership to a more permanent basis from endorsements and merchandising sales. Nascar I believe would benefit in so many ways if they would put there most popular driver behind the wheel of the legendary #3 car, and let Dale Jr. make a new destiny and legend with the number that his father Dale Earnhardt made famous.
It has been almost 10 years now since we last saw the #3 car in a Sprint Cup series race, and the fans are ready to see that car back out on the race track, and who better to drive it than nascars most popular driver Dale Earnarhdt Jr. It would be a win win situation for everyone involved and Nascar could use the extra popularity boost, so nascar fans what do you think, do you all feel that it is time to bring back the #3 car with our most popular driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. behind the wheel? I believe we would see a more competitive Dale Earnhardt Jr, than we currently have now because there is just something about that #3 race car that makes Dale Jr. drive harder than he has before in any of his races since joining Hendrick Motorsports. So race fans I think it is time that we find away to let nascar know that we fans are longing to see that famous #3 car back on the race track, with the 3rd generation driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. behind the wheel, and create a whole new legend for that famous #3 and not let it be retired any longer.
