Richard Childress Racing will complete its one millionth lap in NASCAR competition this weekend during the NASCAR XFINITY Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. The Welcome, N.C., based organization will log the milestone on lap 272 of Friday evening’s XFINITY race.

There have been 64 different drivers who have completed laps for RCR on the NASCAR circuit throughout the organization’s 46-year history, including owner Richard Childress. Kevin Harvick holds the most completed laps (173,383) with the organization, which he achieved through all three major touring series. As of today, Paul Menard has completed the most laps (50,861) among the current RCR driver lineup.

RCR is only the third NASCAR team to have accomplished this milestone.

“Finishing one million laps is hard to believe,” said Richard Childress, CEO and Chairman of RCR. “There have been a lot of good times, great wins and special memories through those million laps. This is a testament to how hard RCR and ECR Engines have worked to remain competitive through the years.

“I want to thank everyone who has been a part of this milestone. We could not have done this without your help.”
