Famous NASCAR Car Owner Coming To Saratoga
One of NASCAR's most popular and well known car owners, Richard Childress, will be coming to the Saratoga Automobile Museum this week. Childress, who owned the famed No. 3 Goodwrench Chevrolets driven by NASCAR idol Dale Earnhardt, is the final NASCAR star to appear for the "Meet and Greet" series as part of the museum's Moonshine To Millionaires - NASCAR's History, Heroes and Technology exhibit.
A former driver himself, Childress is the President and CEO of Richard Childress Racing (RCR) which has won 14 stock car championships.
In 2012, RCR fields three full-time teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for Paul Menard in the No. 27, Kevin Harvick in the No. 29 and Jeff Burton in the No. 31. RCR has three NASCAR Nationwide Series teams: Elliott Sadler in the No. 2, Austin Dillon in the No. 3 and Brendan Gaughan, Kevin Harvick and Paul Menard who share time in the No. 33. RCR also has three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams: Ty Dillon in the No. 3, Joey Coulter in the No. 22 and Brendan Gaughan, Tim George Jr. and Kevin Harvick splitting driving duties in the No. 2 truck.
Childress will be on hand at the museum on Thursday, October 18 at 6:00 p.m to make remarks and field questions plus autograph items for those who attend.
