Last weeekend we saw the No. 3 car of Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo win the Hungarian GP grabbing his second win of the season. And yes, when I say the No. 3, I mean the same number and font that Dale Earnhardt made famous in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
You see, Ricciardo was a big fan of Earnhardt growing up in his home country of Australia.
Yet Ricciardo wasn't the only driver of the No. 3 to make it to victory lane last weekend as, on Saturday, we saw Ty Dillon, the grandson of Richard Childress (the man that owns that famous No. 3) win at the Brickyard in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
