Richard Childress Racing

RCR Enterprises, LLC, doing business as Richard Childress Racing, is a NASCAR team based in Welcome, North Carolina and is owned and operated by former driver now businessman Richard Childress. The team currently fields the #29 Shell/Pennzoil Chevrolet for Kevin Harvick, the #31 Caterpillar Chevrolet for Jeff Burton, and the #33 General Mills/BB&T; Chevrolet for Clint Bowyer in the Sprint Cup Series. The #21 Zaxby's Chevrolet Impala in the Nationwide Series, and the #3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet Silverado for Childress's grandson, Austin Dillon in the Camping World Truck Series.
