Richard Childress Racing (RCR) is aiming to become one of the top contenders again in the Cup Series, as it was in the 1980s and ’90s when Dale Earnhardt won many championships. The last time it won a Cup championship was in 1994, Earnhardt’s sixth championship, and the last time one of its drivers finished in the top 10 in points in a season was in 2014. However, with the addition of Kyle Busch to its team, RCR is witnessing progress towards its goal of returning to the top in NASCAR.
Busch has already won two races this season and is well on his way to taking home more wins. Furthermore, the No. 8 RCR team has five wins in the previous 29 races, with three wins by Tyler Reddick last year. RCR won four races in the previous season, its greatest amount of series wins since Kevin Harvick won four in his last season with the organization in 2013. Still, while Busch and Reddick deserve praise for their driving, the team played a crucial role in their success.
Crew chief Randall Burnett claims that everybody’s enthusiastic about winning races and pulls their weight to make that possible. Burnett is grateful for Kyle’s remarkable driving capabilities, as well as Tyler’s exceptional talents. Even though the team members were fortunate to work with such high-calibre drivers, Burnett noted that everyone stayed close-knit and worked tirelessly.
In conclusion, RCR is slowly but surely making strides towards its goal of returning to the top in NASCAR. Kyle Busch’s addition to its team and five wins in the previous 29 races show that the team is headed in the correct way. Although it requires time and effort, the RCR team appears unstoppable in its goal to become one of the most prominent Cup teams around.
