MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Penske Racing has promoted Todd Gordon to crew chief of its No. 22 Dodge.
The team does not have a driver yet since Kurt Busch left the organization last week after six seasons.
Gordon led Penske's No. 22 team in the Nationwide Series to six wins and six poles last season.
Penske Racing was successful at promoting within with Paul Wolfe as crew chief for Brad Keselowski. Wolfe helped Keselowski to three wins and a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.
Before leaving Penske, Busch said he had hoped the team would promote from within when it filled his crew chief position.
Steve Addington left his role as crew chief at the end of the season to take the same job with reigning champion Tony Stewart.
