    February 16, 2014, 6:39 PM EST
    I just have to say what I saw at Daytona Qualifying brought a tear to my eye. You have this twenty-three year old grandson of the car owner, who is putting the No. 3 car back on the track for the first time since that horrible day in 2001 and theboy goes and wins the pole.

    Martinsville Speedway has always been one of my favorite places. I was blessed to have a lot of success there. Eleven times my team and I got to celebrate there as race winners.
