Dale has clearly stated he'* not worthy of driving the 3. He hasn't won a championship and that was 'daddy'* number'.
HOWEVER, I think Richard Childress could talk him into it. He'* like a Father figure for Dale. I think a Red Budweiser #3 would be very fitting. What RCR has to consider is:
Has Kevin Harvick matured to the point that he can survive in a company with a prominent teammate like that? No problem with Jeff Burton (awesome character) or Clint Bowyer.
(BTW, my custom pushrods were manufactured by the same company that makes them for RCR).
