Richard Childress Racing has added two members to its communications staff.
Andrea Cleveland has been named manager of communications in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for the No. 27 Menards Chevrolet team and driver Paul Menard.

"We look for both of them to provide strong contributions to their specific teams and partners as well as our overall communications effort."
