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.
