Austin won two races in 2010, finished fifth in points, and won the Raybestos Rookie of the Year Award. He is currently sixth in the 2011 standings. He's a nice guy who enjoys what he's doing, and I couldn't resist the temptation to ask him about what it's like having Richard Childress as a grandfather. He simply said, "I couldn't ask for a better one." Childress is a guy I hope to get a chance to meet some day, too. I'd really like to ask him about Earnhardt since I never got to meet him.

Dale was the biggest ambassador the sport he loved ever had. He believed in doing what was best for NASCAR and it's fans. So, I think he would also be glad that the #3 is back on the track. It's good for the sport.
Happy 60th Dale. We miss ya, dude.
