JTG, Furniture Row make crew changes before Brickyard 400
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Two Sprint Cup Series teams are shaking up their crews ahead of the Brickyard 400 this weekend.
JTG Daugherty Racing said Tuesday that Bobby Hutchens is the new general manager for its one-car team and driver Bobby Labonte. He replaces Todd Berrier, who left for Furniture Row Racing to replace Pete Rondeau. Berrier will try to kick-start Regan Smith's season as his new crew chief.
David Hyder will be interim crew chief for Labonte this weekend. The former Cup Series champion has one top-10 finish this season (Daytona) and is 23rd in the points standings.
Berrier worked as crew chief for 11 years at Richard Childress Racing before joining JTG Daugherty at the start of this season. Smith is currently 26th in the standings.
