“Home of the original #3 Race Shop!”
Beginning as a childhood dream of becoming a race car driver while selling peanuts and popcorn at the local track, Richard Childress bought his first race car for $20 and went on to build what is widely considered one of the legendary organizations in the history of motorsports. Richard Childress Racing became synonymous with success and championships with the legendary Dale Earnhardt and the famed black No. 3 Chevrolet. RCR has earned 12 championships, more than 200 victories, and was the first organization to win titles in NASCAR’s three main series. RCR is also renowned and respected for the consistent performance it delivers to its partners, both on the track and in the marketplace. Richard Childress Racing continues its tradition of success, far beyond the hopes and dreams of that young boy and a $20 race car. RCR was a one-team NASCAR Sprint Cup Series shop (No. 3 team) from 1969-1994. A NASCAR Camping World Truck Series program (No. 3) was added in 1995 and a second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team (No. 31) was added for the 1997 season. A two-team NASCAR Nationwide Series program (Nos. 2 and 21) was started for the 2000 season and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team ceased operation. A third NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team (former No. 30, most recently No. 07) was started in 2001 to run a part-time schedule and became a full-time program in 2002. A third NASCAR Nationwide Series team (No. 29) was added in 2006 to run a partial schedule and became a full-time program in 2007. Two years later, the No. 33 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team was formed, giving RCR four entries for the 2009 season. The Welcome, N.C.-based organization returned to three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams in 2010 and rejuvenated its NASCAR Camping World Truck Series program (No.3) and added an ARCA Racing Series team (No. 31) before expanding to four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entries, two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and two ARCA Racing Series teams for the 2011 season.
