CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Former General Motors executive Brent Dewar has been hired as chief operating officer of NASCAR.
NASCAR also promoted chief marketing officer Steve Phelps and senior vice president of racing operations Steve O'Donnell to executive vice presidents. NASCAR general counsel Gary Crotty was elevated to chief legal officer.
The executive leadership restructuring reflects NASCAR chairman Brian France's effort to accelerate progress on changes in competition and research and development.
Dewar has been consulting with NASCAR for the past year. His addition to the executive group will balance the responsibility and allow France to focus on setting the vision for NASCAR.
Dewar most recently has held senior consulting roles at several firms. He previously spent nearly three decades with General Motors and his final assignment was senior vice president of Global Chevrolet.
