Earnhardt's #3 Headed Back to Track

Posted by Brian Giesenschlag

For one race in July Dale Earnhardt's #3 Wrangler Chevrolet will be back on the track.  Dale Earnhardt Jr will drive it in the Nationwide series race at Daytona.

Earnhardt says it's the perfect way to honor his Dad, who'll be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame this summer.

The #3 hasn't been allowed in a sprint cup race since Earnhardt died in 2-thousand-1.

Thursday would have been Earnhardt's 59th birthday.
