Weedsport, New York – Jimmy Horton drove one, so did Chuck Akulis & Pete Corey too. Rene Charland was an ace in one and Gary Reddick drove one but added a “V”. Even Brett Hearn drove one for his “Buds”, and today Chad Brachmann continues to win with one, strapped to a small block at Ransomville and wherever the road takes him. Different era’s, different driving styles, one number. “3”.
This partial list shows the power of a singular number. In Nascar circles, “3” stands for just one man now. But, on the dirt, on our tracks, of all sizes and shapes, in every division from streamlined beauties to loveable ugly ducklings on four wheels, from Accord to Can-Am, down to Selinsgrove and New Egypt, to Ransomville and Black Rock, I-88 too, then back around the horn to Fulton, Five Mile & a place called Penn Can. Woodhull, Rolling Wheels and Brewerton, And if your eyes can adjust quickly enough, you’ll even spot a “3” or three at speed on the Moody Mile, on any given night, you will get to see your share of good old #3’s.
Today, 630 honorary “Hall of Famers” are coming together to celebrate their favorite drivers who’s cars were adorned with that “#3” as they continue the “Countdown to Induction Sunday”.
