Rick Ware Racing hires Doug Richert

Richert joins Hill and RWR in Nationwide campaign

When Doug Richert joined Rick Ware Racing(RWR) he felt right at home with a fleet of Roush-Fenway Mustangs at his control. The former crew chief for Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle at Roush-Fenway Racing just grinned as he walked through the small shop of RWR.

Richert, a thirty year veteran of calling the shots in NASCAR, will once again will give guidence to a young driver that few have heard of such as Timmy Hill.

Thirty years ago, Richert became the youngest Championship Crew Chief in history in 1980 winning the NASCAR Winston Cup title with a driver by the name of Dale Earnhardt.

The first championship of Earnhardt's was just a start for Richert, who at the age of 20 had reached the pinnacle of his profession.
