Andy Petree has been retained by Richard Childress Racing as a competition advisor.

Petree was the crew chief for Dale Earnhardt when he won his last two Cup championships in 1993 and 1994. RCR has not won a Cup title since.

“We welcome Andy to RCR in an advisory role,” Richard Childress said in a press release. “Andy is someone I’ve known for many years and his knowledge of our industry runs deep. He is well respected within our community and will provide a fresh perspective as we evaluate opportunities to improve.”

Petree owned his own NASCAR team from 1996 to 2004 and fielded entries in all three of NASCAR’s top touring series.

He won 25 Cup races as a crew chief and four NASCAR races as an owner.
