Yes sir! That was quite a sight to see the Wrangler #3 on the move and in Victory Lane.

It was good to hear Logano say that he was trying to take the race from the 3 but couldn't do it. (Wonder what the 6 car was thinking by not going with the 20 on the last lap. ) Nothing contrived about this win!

I like that he didn't do a burn out. Even though he said it was to preserve the motor, I thought his entire post race w/o the burnout was simply classy.

Really liked Richard Childress saying there are no plans to bring the 3 back to the big series' going forward. I wholeheartedly agree.

Finally, it was nice to hear the crowds cheering for Jr and the 3.

I think this was a great story and no better sendoff for the number 3. Also, I like the design the Nationwide cars had last night.

And to come back and take a 4th place, even though it was kind of a gift, but that's part of racing also to avoid the wrecks.........what a great weekend for Jr.
