    I agree. But RCR owns the number and they can run it if they want. Is it just coincidence it happens to be on the pole first time back? :bigthink

    If yesterday's Busch race is any indication, today's race should be good.

    I was at the Firecracker 400 at Daytona in July when Jr won the race the same year his dad died. 160,000 rednecks going apeshit, crying and hugging each other. It was pretty incredible to see.
