Since that February late afternoon when Dale Earnhardt Sr. slewed up the track on the last lap of the Daytona 500 and NASCAR lost its most iconic figure, car owner Richard Childress has refused to field Earnhardt's equally iconic No. 3 in the sport's top series.
But this year, finally, he relented, and this afternoon, out rolled Childress' grandson, Austin Dillon, in the No. 3 to qualify for next Sunday's Daytona 500.
Like I even need to tell you what happened next.
You got it: Dillon won the pole.
Spooky. And, yeah, only perfect.
