CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - JR Motorsports has parted ways with crew chief Tony Eury Jr., two weeks after his father was ousted as competition director.
Eury Jr. was crew chief for Danica Patrick and is a partial owner of the Nationwide Series team.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. said in a statement Monday that a difference in ideas for the direction of the company led to Eury's departure. He and Eury Jr. are cousins, and Eury Jr. was his crew chief for many years.
Earnhardt says no decision has been made as to who will crew chief Patrick this weekend at Kentucky Speedway.
The team last week hired Ryan Pemberton as competition director. He replaced Tony Eury Sr., who was released two weeks ago.
