 FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Richard Childress is bringing back the No. 3 car full time into the NASCAR Nationwide Series next season with his grandson Austin Dillon moving up from trucks.
Dillon has used No. 3 in the Camping World Truck Series, where he is the season points leader, but this will be the first time the No. 3 will be regularly used on a car since Cup champion Dale Earnhardt's death at the end of the 2001 Daytona 500.
Childress said Friday he has no intention of taking the No. 3 back into the Sprint Cup Series.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won consecutive Nationwide championships (1998-99) in the No. 3 Chevrolet for Dale Earnhardt Inc. He won Nationwide races in the No. 3 for Childress at Daytona in 2002 and 2010.
