More changes are coming to Roush Fenway Racing in 2013.
The organization announced Wednesday that Jimmy Fennig will be on top of the box for the No. 99 Ford in 2013. It will be Carl Edwards’ third crew chief since the Daytona 500 this year as Bob Osborne took a leave for medical reasons and Chad Norris had to step in starting in July.
Edwards hasn’t won in 68 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races but has a great shot at ending that long run this Sunday at one of his most successful tracks.
If he can’t, Fennig will surely get that streak to end as he’s a championship winning crew chief. He won the 2004 Sprint Cup title with Kurt Busch and has 36 career victories as a crew chief. He’s worked with nothing but top drivers since he started in NASCAR in 1986.
Edwards is 15th in the points standings and having one of his worst seasons in Cup action. His average finish with Norris is 17th and the No. 99 hasn’t been a factor for wins all season. Change was definitely needed to rejuvenate this team.
Fennig was supposed to stay with the No. 17 team and be the crew chief for rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr., but Jack Roush thought it would be better to pair him with Edwards and promote Scott Graves to be the crew chief for Stenhouse.
Graves is an engineer on Edwards’ team and was on top of the box for his Nationwide Series win at Watkins Glen back in August. He will hope to bring what could soon be a two-time Nationwide Series in Stenhouse Jr. to success quickly at NASCAR’s top level.
