Richard Childress Racing Flying Quietly Under The Radar During Speedweeks

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla – Richard Childress Racing has always been among the superior teams in restrictor plate racing. Thank Dale Earnhardt for that. But, in the wake of his passing, it seems like RCR dropped a little bit as far as their restrictor plate prowess. Now, it appears that it’s rising again. During the 2018 Daytona Speedweeks, RCR and the teams they have aligned with are flying under the radar and should make some noise in Sunday’s 60th annual Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET/FOX/MRN/SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

5 Storylines For Richard Childress Racing For 2018 Cup Season

While the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season wasn’t a championship winning one for Richard Childress Racing, in my opinion, it was deemed to be a successful one. RCR got not just one, but two drivers into the playoffs last year. Yes, both were eliminated in the first round, but the fact that both made it, and how they made it, was by in large a turning point for the organization. Both Ryan Newman and Austin Dillon took their RCR cars to victory lane in 2017, now both are…
