CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Roush Fenway Racing has named Matt Puccia crew chief for Greg Biffle beginning with this weekend’s race at New Hampshire.
Puccia will replace Greg Erwin as crew chief of the No. 16 Ford. He has been with the organization since 2004, most recently in the research and development program.
Puccia had previously been crew chief for Paul Menard in the Nationwide Series last season.
Erwin had been Biffle’s crew chief since May, 2007. He led Biffle to five wins and three appearances in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The team says it will announce his new role with the organization at a later date.
Biffle is currently 14th in the Sprint Cup standings with five top-10 finishes this season.
