LEUVEN, BELGIUM-Richard Childress Racing (RCR) is investing in a multi-million dollar partnership with Metris to use the Belgium-based company’s integrated metrology solutions in the production of the nine-time NASCAR champion racing organization’s engines and racecars.

Metris, with U.S. operations in Detroit, California and Virginia, will supply RCR with high-technology metrology systems, both contact and optical, and the expertise to improve the aerodynamics and boost the performance of its engines.
