10:43 AM ET 11.20 | While team owner Richard Childress has said he has no plans to bring the stylized No. 3 Dale Earnhardt made famous back to Sprint Cup racing, Dale Earnhardt Jr. reiterated he has no problems with Austin Dillon using the number if Childress changes his mind.

I think Childress will do as he has said in the past, I doubt he will use the #3 in Cup. He has left a little wiggle room in his statements though, he talks of the "stylized" #3. He could go with a plain #3 and still keep his word.

Jr would have had easier time gettin over everthin if the fans and media didn't keep rubbin in his face. I think Jr is a cool guy and has handled all the pressure and Sr comparisons in a good way.Don't think I could have been so cool about same situation. #3 represents his dad but the media treatment of that number is tougher. I agree that the way Childress is usin the #3 is good.
Don't agree that fans will think of Kyle same way as Sr in future. Kyle will gain fans, but not to same level.
Go Carl Go.
