Merry Christmas 3WideAlley

December 24th, 2013



December has been a rough time of the year for my family. We’ve lost loved ones in this month, numerous other disasters always seem to happen in December, and everyone gets sick. To top it off, I get a year older! This year I have a relative and a very close friend down the hall from each other in the same hospital with serious illnesses. Others of our 3 wide friends have lost family and have had other serious issues this year. December always seems to hit me and a lot of people I’m close to real hard. Sometimes I wonder why this month and not others. Then I think that maybe it’s because this time of the year, you are reminded more about how short life is on earth and how wonderful the promises are for more. That helps ease the pain of loss, reminded that your loved ones are in a better place or have a better place in front of them where there will be no more pain and hardship.

December has always given me a lot of heartache and difficulties, but it gives great comfort and even joy to remember the Reason for the Season, to be thankful for the time we had with loved ones, and to remember to appreciate the loved ones that are still with us. It is also a good time to be thankful for the great country we still live in, to remember to appreciate the gifts it gives us, and that it’s worth working hard to keep them to pass on to our children. We should always remember those who serve out country and are in harms way to keep us safe. I hope those of you who have suffered loss will have some comfort and know that a lot of your 3Wide friends are thinking of you. Merry Christmas everyone, I hope all of you will find joy and comfort with your family and friends.

What I think Dale would have to say about the #3 coming back

December 12th, 2013

Dale SrTheMan1

I think if Dale was around to respond to all the haters and whiners, it’d go something like this:

For those of you who are either jealous of Austin Dillon, or love to focus on loss and losing instead of racing and winning, stay the hell home. Don’t come here and grumble about the #3 being back on the track, that’s where it belongs! The #3 should be raced! Stay the hell away and don’t watch if you’ve got feathers on your legs or butt! Put a kerosene rag around your ankles so the ants won’t climb up and eat that candy ass.


In my opinion, the #3 will ALWAYS be Dale’s number – Austin will just be driving it. I think it’s a great way to keep Dale’s legacy alive. All I ask is that the person who drives the #3 doesn’t bring any disrespect or embarrassment to it. So far, I think Austin will do well, but time will tell.
