About Richard Childress Racing

Founded in 1969, Richard Childress Racing is one of the largest and most storied organizations in NASCAR competition. RCR currently fields two teams in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and three teams in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

Throughout our history, RCR has accumulated a total of 17 championships and more than 200 victories across NASCAR’s top three series, including two Daytona 500 wins (1998, 2007) and three Brickyard 400 victories (1995, 2003, 2011) two of the sport’s crown jewels of competition. RCR was the first organization in NASCAR history to win championships across all three national touring series.

On our 17-building, 52-acre campus in Welcome, North Carolina, RCR’s 400+ team members build race cars from the ground up in a fully-integrated vertical manufacturing operation. With a culture focused on innovation, our engineering team utilizes cutting-edge technologies to continuously improve the performance of our race cars.

Our headquarters is also home to ECR Engines, a subsidiary of RCR that provides high-performance motors to our and other Chevrolet teams in NASCAR’s top three national series.
