Incredible: Thursday’s Duel Win Was Rodney Childers’ First-Ever Plate Race Win

By Toby Christie         

Kevin Harvick’s crew chief Rodney Childers is regarded as one of the best crew chiefs in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage area. In 14 years as a crew chief, Childers has compiled 25 victories and a championship in 2014.

However, there is something that Childers had never accomplished before Harvick’s Duel win on Thursday night: a win at a restrictor plate track.

In 17 years of being a NASCAR crew member/crew chief, Childers had never won a restrictor plate race. That is absolutely unbelievable.
