On 7/2 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Nationwide Race at Daytona. He was driving a car that looked like his father’s Wrangler car with the #3 on it. What a great ending!! I think he had a co-pilot with him :-)- his Dad. It has been a long time since he has won a race but this was an important one. Tony Eury, Jr. was his crew chief, Richard Childress let him use the #3, and his crew were the #8 team’s crew. DEI worked with him, too. Jr. said that this is the last time driving the #3.
It was great to see the end of the race and all the fans standing with 3 fingers in the air. The emotions were at a high – even Tony Eury, Jr. was crying!
