That Dale Earnhardt Jr would be racing the #3 Wrangler car in the Nationwide Series has been a talked about story for months. I mean it seems probably because it has been talked about since April.
Yea… Anyway everyone has their opinions and so do some NASCAR drivers. I found a quote from Matt Kenseth during the Q&A session for the Coke Zero 400 to be a bit numerous.
DO YOU HAVE ANY MEMORIES OF THE BLUE No. 3 CAR HERE? “I haven’t seen it yet, to be honest with you. I haven’t seen it yet or watched any of that. I guess I heard about it and saw the car sitting someone in a picture or something, but I think it’s pretty cool. I’m sure they’ll sell a lot of diecasts and t-shirts. I think it’s cool that he’s driving the 3. I think everybody thought someday he was gonna go drive the 3 again and, really, to be honest, it makes me remember more about running the Busch Series with Dale Jr., and always ran the 3 car and racing against each other for championships. We both started the same year and moved up to Cup together the same year, so that really brings up more of those memories, to be honest, than anything. It just reminds me of how much fun we had racing for those couple of years in the Busch Series, now the Nationwide Series.”
