How'd You Pick Your Car Number?

84

I was just thinking about how drivers picked the car number they run.  There's got to be a reason/story I'm sure.  As for me, when I started racing back in 1998 I couldn't figure out what number I should use.  I told my youngest son who then said "Dad that's easy.  We live in Alaska the 49th state so your number should be 49.  And so it has been since.  Is there a story behind your number?

I  ran the 6 for a long time then 06 and I found those numbers very popular with NR2003.
I picked the 98 as I like a lot of drivers who have ran it before.
Parnelli Jones, John Andretti, Marco Andretti, Erin Crocker, Carroll Shelby, Ken Miles, Leeroy Yarbrough

I wanted to run the 4 car when I got started because it was the car # I ran in real racing. Unfortunately, that car # was taken so in short notice the next car # I could find with an in game carfile was the 20.  Nobody seemed to run the 20 car way back then so it just stuck with me.

I started off using the 56 because of availabilty then switch to 57 when I switched to Piggz Racing league because the 56 was in use, then I switched to the 5 because I wanted to have a single digit car number and I liked Texas Terry.

I chose the 835 number from doing a lot of open server racing where most of the numbers were taken. So I took Dale Jr #8 Dale Sr #3 and subtracted = 5 #835
