Setting The Record Straight With The Number Three

It was bound to happen: RCR's Austin Dillon won a race, and all that talk about the number three resurfaced again. Not all, but many fans consider it sacrilege that a racer not named Earnhardt uses it on his car. For the uninitiated, the number three was shorn upon the car driven by the iconic Dale Earnhardt during the zenith of his legendary career.

Out of his 32 victories in NASCAR's top touring series, Kevin Harvick now has eight at Phoenix International Raceway.
