Visiting | Richard's Passions

As you might know, Richard developed his passion for fine wines early in his racing career as he traveled to California and other established wine regions.  During his travels around the racing circuit, Richard played at some of the world's top golf courses.  This helped him discover the gem in his "backyard" - Sapona Ridge Country Club. 

Richard's Passion is about experiencing three of his chief passions: fast racing, fine wines and great golf.  Come experience the highest form of excellence and enjoy a taste of the luxurious lifestyle of Richard Childress at Richard Childress Racing, Childress Vineyards and Sapona Ridge Country Club.
