Re: Dale earnhardt\'s number retiring petition!
I believe i heard on the radio today that richard childress is not using earhardt's 3 or a black car for the rest of the season. He is goin to run a white number 29 i believe.
I live in Bristol, Tn. Home of the worlds fastest half mile, The Bristol Motor Speedway. They had a memorial in victory lane last nite and over 2500 people showed up. PLUS, theres a memorial setup under the main entrance sign and traffic is backed up jus like it was race weekend.
I myself was never an earnhardt fan but i did respect him greatly, he did things with a car that many thought were impossible. I honestly believe if he could come back and say what he thought about what happened he would simply say "rubbin is racin".
About retiring the number, i see it like this: davey didnt die in his car nor did kulwicki and richard petty is still alive. Im to young to know about fireball roberts. But is neil bonnets old number being used, i dont remember what his number was. Earnhardt died in his car, The black number 3 was HIS car. I believe it should be retired for this year and fly his flag in respect, and then see what everybody thinks next season.
