Richard Childress Racing will continue its alliance with Furnitre Row Racing in 2014.

The alliance includes technology sharing, engineering, research and development provided to Furniture Row’s No. 78 Chevrolet from RCR. The partnership, which started in 2010, also includes Furniture Row utilizing ECR Engines.

“Barney Visser (FRR owner) is one of the finest and most committed men I have ever dealt with in this sport,” said Richard Childress in a press release. “He has brought a lot to this sport and it’s great to renew this partnership.”

Furniture Row, a single car team located in Denver, qualified for the Sprint Cup Series Chase for the first time last season with Kurt Busch behind the wheel.

“I’m looking forward to working with him and the strong team he has assembled out in Colorado. Seeing them make the Chase for the first time this year shows how successful this partnership has become. I believe we’ll have similar success in 2014 and beyond, and we’re going to do our best to make that happen.”

RCR driver Kevin Harvick also qualified for the Chase this season. Ironically Harvick and Busch will both leave their teams at the end of the season and join Stewart Hass Racing – which has an alliance with Henrick Motorsports.
