Richard Childress is in a very tiny group, whose members have been selected as NASCAR’s Humanitarian of the Year. He’s obviously inspired at least one person. This 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that Childress once fielded for Kevin Harvick is being donated by its owner, who bought the car from Richard Childress Racing and had been displaying it to raise funds for the Cooke and Old Village schools in Northville, Michigan.
The NASCAR Chevrolet’s owner is a Cooke School alumnus, and the parent of a current Cooke student. Both Cooke and Old Village provide programs for students with cognitive impairment and other unique needs. The car will be sold by Mecum Auctions at its Kissimmee, Florida, sale on January 28, with live coverage on The Discovery Channel. We want to make clear that this is no supermarket show car: Harvick raced it at Atlanta in 2002, and it was an RCR test car at Indianapolis, Charlotte and Michigan.
