It's almost mind boggling to think of Richard Childress Racing in anything but Chevrolets but after the recent news of Kevin Harvick leaving the organization after 13 seasons, I think it's time for Richard Childress Racing to change manufacturers. I know it's never going to happen, after all the organization has been with General Motors since 1969 when Richard Childress broke onto the NASCAR Grand National tour at Talladega Superspeedway. The company was even sponsored by Chevrolet from 1988-2006 with drivers Dale Earnhardt and Kevin Harvick, however after years of being beaten by Rick Hendrick it could be time for Childress to consider a move. Look at Joe Gibbs Racing. The organization moved to Toyota in 2008 after being the third Chevrolet team behind Hendrick and Childress. Toyota made Gibbs an offer they couldn't refuse. Gibbs turned into the premier Toyota team and have won more races in four years in a Toyota than they did in the four previous seasons with Chevrolet. With Childress maybe the same thing can happen. Dodge has recently released a statement saying they would be interested in coming back into NASCAR with the right organization. With that in mind, Richard Childress Racing would be the perfect organization to get back into the sport with. RCR builds their own engines, which was a problem for Dodge when they were looking to associate themselves with a team for 2013 and beyond. Richard Childress Racing is now third in line at Chevrolet behind Hendrick Motorsports and Stewart-Haas Racing. If Dodge offers him more money and gives the organization the okay to expand, he has to go to Dodge. It would make sense because they would be getting additional funding from Dodge which would help the team compete with Hendrick and Stewart-Haas, two teams he currently cannot compete with. Most likely Richard Childress Racing is going to stay with Chevrolet because Richard Childress himself is one of the most loyal men in NASCAR history and he and Chevrolet go way back, but as crazy as the theory is, it wouldn't be the worst move in the world for Childress to go to Dodge. After all, crazier things have happened.
