Off the Wall With: Richard Childress

Welcome to Off the Wall With…, where we ask your favorite drivers five questions that are…well, off the wall! We’ll check in with a different driver each week to get a peek into life outside the race car. This week, longtime NASCAR car owner Richard Childress stops by to answer our silly questions.

What’s fun besides racing?

Richard Childress: I love the outdoors. Enjoy the outdoors and spending time with the NRA. I’m doing a lot of work with them right now. That is my fun stuff.

What’s the top item on your bucket list?

Childress: Winning that next Cup championship.

Your go-to on movie night is:

Childress: If I’m looking for a good movie I’m looking for a good Clint Eastwood movie.

What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?

Childress: Childress Vineyards wine.

Most memorable fan interaction?

Childress: It would take me some time for that. I love our fans so much and have done so much with them. Taking some of them for a ride has been fun. Having the guy that looked like Dale with us at Talladega when we won the million that time was cool.
