Martinsville Speedway, Richard Childress Racing, and Childress Vineyards are teaming up to celebrate the race team’s 50th Anniversary with a special “Cheers to the Years” ticket package available to fans attending the First Data 500 this fall.

Each ticket fans purchase to the First Data 500 on October 27, 2019, will include one free admission to the RCR Museum and one free cellar or barrel select wine tasting at Childress Vineyards. Vouchers for the two experiences will be mailed with race tickets and are good from October 1 through November 16, 2019.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Richard Childress Racing as well as Childress Vineyards to celebrate Richard’s 50 years in NASCAR,” said Clay Campbell, Martinsville Speedway track president. “Richard has played such an important part in the history of NASCAR, as well as Martinsville Speedway, and we are honored to be involved in such a milestone year for him. His achievements reflect what the American dream is all about.”

Fans can use the RCR Museum voucher during the team’s Fan Day on Friday, October 25, 2019, when the organization celebrates its 50th Anniversary leading into the Martinsville Speedway race weekend. Driver autograph sessions, Q&As, shop tours and more will be available to fans throughout the day before Childress Vineyards kicks off the Lexington BBQ Festival that evening with the fifth annual Pre-Pig Shindig just down the road.

“We’ve had a lot of memorable moments throughout RCR’s 50 years at Martinsville Speedway,” said Richard Childress, Chairman and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. “Martinsville Speedway has become a home track to us over years, so we’re proud to be partnering with them to provide a special ticket package for our fans. I hope they’ll take advantage of the offer, and come visit our race shop, museum and the winery before a great weekend of racing at Martinsville.”
