Earnhardt drove the final 11 races of that 1981 season in Childress' No. 3 before driving for Bud Moore in 1982 and 1983. Childress would hire Ricky Rudd in 1982 and they would have pretty decent success until Earnhardt became available again prior to the 1984 season and the rest as they say is history. From 1984 to 2001 Earnhardt ran the No. 3 and won a remarkable 67 races and six championships. Earnhardt and his No. 3 car became one of the most iconic figures in American auto racing history. That was until the day he died on February 18, 2001 when he crashed on the final lap of the Daytona 500. Since that day the No. 3 has not raced in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
