NASCAR America: Ricky Rudd helps Richard Childress unveil throwback paint schemes


Richard Childress Racing unveiled the Southern 500 paint schemes Wednesday for Ryan Newman and Austin Dillon.

During the unveiling in Welcome, North Carolina, NBC Sports’ Marty Snider spoke with team owner Richard Childress and retired veteran Ricky Rudd, who scored RCR’s first Sprint Cup victory on June 5, 1983 at Riverside International Raceway in a No. 3 Chevrolet sponsored by Piedmont Airlines.

Dillon’s car for the Sept. 4 race at Darlington Raceway will salute Rudd’s car with the same paint scheme.
