What is Richard Childress' net worth? Richard Childress' net worth is $200 million dollars. Born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Richard Childress professional racing career began on a strange note, when he was drafted to race after the current NASCAR riders went on strike. Though he only proved to be an average driver, with a third-place finish in 1978 being his personal best, he would prove to be an excellent manager. After winning with his driver, Ricky Rudd in 1983, Childress began to recruit more drivers, including Dale Earnhardt, who would go on to win multiple championships. His team, Richard Childress Racing (RCR) has gone on to be one of the most successful in NASCAR history. It currently consists of Sprint Cup Drivers, Paul Menard, Kevin Harvick, Jeff Burton, and Clint Bowyer; Nationwide Series driver, Austin Dillon; Camping World Truck driver, Joey Coulter; and Arca Re/Max Series drivers, Tim George, Jr. and Ty Dillon. In addition to his NASCAR work, he has also opened the Richard Childress Racing Museum, and the Childress Vineyards Winery in nearby Lexington.
