Long Live the 28

It's interesting that Rick Hendrick has filed a trademark application for the No. 28 with the U.S. Patent Office in an attempt to get it for Dale Jr. This number has a history unparalleled. The pic is of Davey Allison's Havoline Winston Cup Car, thanks to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame website, shows it full of glory displayed in the Hall of Fame museum. The number was last used by RYR and Ricky Rudd in '02. In the past the famed 28 has been used by Dale Jarrett, Kenny Irwin, Ernie Irvan, Cale Yarborough, Bobby Allison, Buddy Baker, Fred Lorenzen and A.J. Foyt. Hendrick said Jr.'s car will have an 8 on it, and personally I like this choice the best.

I prefer the #28 also. It's the most recent one they asked for and that may be why there's a holdup of the announcement. Each time they were ready, another number possibility popped up. I am getting very antsy about his number and sponsor.
