Description
Lot #1303 - For 20+ years, Richard Childress has been part of NASCAR's elite. As a team owner, he has won more than 175 races and 11 major NASCAR championships. As a young man, he scraped together enough money to build a racecar to compete throughout the Southeast, driving after work to race, then driving all night to make it back to work Monday. He drove the truck, welded the chassis, fabricated the bodies and hand-built the engines. He earned great success and legendary status as a team owner with his driver and great friend, the legendary Dale Earnhardt. Together, along with the Richard Childress Racing organization, they rewrote the history books and dominated the sport, creating a mystique and following second to none. Never before has Richard Childress opened his shop for a project like the 1969 RCR Series 3 Camaro. His personal involvement and the input of RCR's engine builders, chassis specialists, engineers and fabricators ensure this car embodies RCR excellence. The inspiration for the RCR Series 3 Camaro, of which only 50 will be produced, comes from the No. 3 Chevrolet racecars made famous by RCR and Earnhardt. In fact, this RCR Series 3 Camaro is Serial No. 3. The car includes two engines: a 500+hp all aluminum 427 engine spec'ed out by RCR and built by Kieth Craft Motorsports and a NASCAR race-used SB2 powerhouse. With 603hp, the SB2 was built and tuned at the RCR engine shop and the block was in the No. 3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet that Earnhardt raced in the 2000 Daytona 500. Richard Childress is about self-made success and associations with greatness, all the while staying true to his roots. The same can be said for the RCR Series 3 Camaro.
