WELCOME, N.C. (Feb. 4, 2011) – While drivers, crew chiefs and teams of Richard Childress Racing are preparing for NASCAR’s version of the Super Bowl in Daytona, many of them will be watching the 2011 NFL championship matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Below are RCR’s driver and crew chief picks for Super Bowl XLV:

“Being from Wisconsin, I am definitely pulling for the Packers,” said Menard. “I think it’s going to be a pretty good game this year – a close one and not a blow out. But, I do think the Pack is going to get the win.”

Sprint Cup crew chiefs Labbe and Martin chose the Steelers as this year’s victors. “Why?” asked Labbe. “Because, I’m a Yankee from Maine!” Martin, a huge Tennessee Titans fan, selected the Steelers in hopes that they bring the title home to both the Titans’ and Steelers’ conference – the AFC.

Harvick, a San Francisco 49ers fan, will be in attendance for this year’s Super Bowl and will cheer on the Packers because “they are on a hot-winning streak and I think they can get the job done.”

RCR teams begin their trek to Daytona International Speedway in the middle of next week for the opening of the 2011 NASCAR and ARCA seasons. Ty Dillon and George, Jr. will compete in the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 on Saturday, February 12 before Bowyer, Burton and Harvick hit the track later that evening in the no-holds barred Budweiser Shootout event.

Austin Dillon and Coulter will kick off the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season on Friday, February 18 at the ‘World Center of Racing’ prior to Bowyer, Burton, Harvick and Menard taking the reigns of their RCR entries in the series’ most prestigious event – the Daytona 500.
