CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Juan Pablo Montoya will have a new crew chief when he returns next week to Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Earnhardt Ganassi Racing said Tuesday that Jim Pohlman has taken over the crew chief job for Montoya effective immediately. Pohlman replaces Brian Pattie.
Pattie had been Montoya's crew chief since the 12th race of the 2008 season. He guided Montoya to only one win and one appearance in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, but their work together had been much better than their statistics show.
Montoya dominated the last two races at Indianapolis, but late race mistakes cost him both wins.
