The Richard Childress Racing Museum, located front and center on the 52-acre RCR campus in Welcome, North Carolina, offers visitors a walk through time and traces how an independent one-car team evolved into one of NASCAR's most successful organizations.
The RCR Museum takes visitors through a journey that includes team owner Richard Childress' earliest days as a NASCAR driver, the championship-winning years with Dale Earnhardt and the No. 3 team, the evolution and success of the team after Earnhardt's untimely passing, and Childress' passion for the outdoors.
Based in the 47,000-square foot shop that was home to Earnhardt's No. 3 team for many years, visitors have the opportunity to step back in time to see race cars and other artifacts that have contributed to some of the most iconic moments in NASCAR history.
The museum hosts the largest collection of No. 3 Goodwrench Chevrolets, including the 1998 Daytona 500-winning car, the 1995 Brickyard 400 winner and each of the special paint schemes driven by Earnhardt in the All-Star races from 1995-2000. Guests can learn how the RCR crew developed, built and prepared Chevrolets each week by walking through the different departments of the old race shop.
The museum is also home to some of the team's most successful cars and iconic moments outside of the Earnhardt-Childress legacy:
– 2001 No. 29 Chevrolet driven to victory by Kevin Harvick at Atlanta Motor Speedway
– 2003 Brickyard 400-winning No. 29 Chevrolet
