“Return of the 3”

Used first in the early 1970’s by Richard Childress and made famous by Dale Earnhardt, the car number 3 is arguably one of the most iconic in NASCAR! In February of 2014 that famous number is set to return at the Daytona 500 in the Childress-owned Dow Chevrolet with Rookie Of The Year contender Austin Dillon behind the wheel.

Celebrating its return, this watercolor and mixed-media illustration portrays Dillon in the turn at Daytona with an image of Dale Earnhardt’s GM Goodwrench Chevrolet reflected in the “DAYTONA” on the wall next to him. Childress’ past and Dillon’s future are bridged by the legendary reflection, highlighting the drama and emotion that is connected to the iconic number.
