Rodney Childers Renews Contract, Will Remain Crew Chief for Kevin Harvick

Rodney Childers agreed to a multi-year contract with Stewart Haas Racing Monday (Oct. 7) to continue as crew chief for Kevin Harvick.

The news was first reported by Sports Business Journal’s Adam Stern.

Childers has served as Harvick’s crew chief at Stewart-Haas Racing since 2014. Before coming to SHR, he worked at Michael Waltrip Racing.

Childers confirmed the news after Stern’s report came out, a little while later.

Combined together, Childers and Harvick have won 25 races in their four seasons as well as one championship together, in 2015. They’re the longest-tenured driver/crew chief partnership within the four-car organization.

Fix your headline. Rodney Childers. Not Childress.

Ditto… First thing I noticed when I opened the FS homepage.


Don’t let the name in the tweet fool you. Don’t you know it’s really Rodney Childress.
