Richard Childress Net Worth $200 Million
Richard Childress is a former NASCAR driver that has an estimated net worth of $200 million. Born on September 21, 1945 in Winston Salem, North Carolina, his professional racing career started in rather a odd way. Mr. Childress was drafted to race after the existing NASCAR drivers chose to really go on strike. Mr. Childress might be an typical driver but he could complete third place in 1978 which was his personal best. Mr. Childress is a wonderful manager. In 1983, he won along with his driver Ricky Rudd. Ever since then, he started to recruit additional drivers including Dale Earnhardt who went on to win several championships. His Richard Childress Racing (RCR) team is one of the most successful teams in the history of NASCAR. A number of its Sprint Cup Motorists are Paul Menard, Kevin Harvick, Jeff Burton and Clint Bowyer. Other motorists included National Series driver Austin Dillion, Camping World Truck driver Joey Coulter and Arca Re/Max Series motorists Tim George Jr. and Ty Dillion. Besides his work with NASCAR, he is one entrepreneur who became one of the richest men in North Carolina. He started a vineyard in 2003/2004 called the Childress Vineyard in the Yadkin Valley AVA, an American Viticultural Area in North Carolina. He is a part of the Board of Directors of National Riffle Association. He also started the Richard Childress Racing Museum.
