CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Richard Childress Racing has named Drew Blickensderfer crew chief for Jeff Burton.
It's the second crew chief change for RCR this offseason, and fifth in the Sprint Cup Series since the season ended eight days ago at Homestead. RCR also changed Kevin Harvick's crew chief last week.
Luke Lambert had been Burton's crew chief on an interim basis, but will be moved to a new position at RCR.
Blickensderfer spent nearly a decade with Roush Fenway Racing and led David Ragan to his first career victory this season in Daytona at July. RFR is likely closing Ragan's team because of a lack of sponsorship, which freed up Blickensderfer.
RCR says more competition changes will be announced in the coming weeks but Slugger Labbe will return next season with Paul Menard.
