No matter where you look this week within NASCAR, one thing is for sure. Everyone has something to talk about regarding the No. 3's return to racing in NASCAR's top division.
With Austin Dillon winning the pole position for the Daytona 500, it means that one of the sport's most iconic numbers will lead the field to the green flag to start the first race of the season on Sunday.
And you know what? That is a great thing!
One of the things that make working at Atlanta Motor Speedway fun for many of us is that you, the race fans, are among the most passionate fans in all of sports. If you have an opinion about something, you're going to make your voice heard, either by expressing yourselves on social media sites or showing the fandom of your favorite driver by wearing apparel when you're at the racetrack and other places.
A very exciting 2014 NASCAR season is in store. There is no question about that.
You have Tony Stewart returning from injury and Denny Hamlin and Brad Keselowski looking to bounce back from failing to make the Chase for the Sprint Cup last year. When you add in the new Chase format and a new qualifying structure to go with the buzz surrounding Dillon driving the No. 3 car, you have the elements for what figures to be an exciting year!
Between now and Labor Day Weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway, it's going to be a fun season!
