Richard Childress Racing announces new crew chief personnel change

RCR Shuffles Crew Changes Ahead of Martinsville Speedway Showdown as Hendrick Motorsports Continues its Dominance in NASCAR’s premier series

Richard Childress Racing is making competition personnel changes in preparation for their upcoming race at Martinsville Speedway. Austin Dillon will be getting a new crew chief for the remainder of the season, with Justin Alexander returning to the No. 3 pit box. Alexander is taking over from Keith Rodden, who had joined RCR and the No. 3 team at the start of the 2023 season. Additionally, Joel Keller has been appointed as the lead engineer for the No. 3 team.

Martinsville Speedway holds a special significance to Hendrick Motorsports, the winningest Cup team. The team has a strong history at this track, with past victories from drivers like Geoff, Jimmie, and now Chase.

Andy Petree, the executive vice president of RCR, stated that these organizational changes were implemented to support the NASCAR Cup Series program as they gear up for the rest of the season and aim to secure two team spots in the NASCAR Playoffs. Petree expressed gratitude towards Rodden for his leadership of the No. 3 team while acknowledging his continued contributions in his new role within RCR.

Dillon currently sits at 28th place in the Cup standings as he heads to Martinsville. He has one top-20 finish so far this season, placing 16th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The team is optimistic about these changes made and is looking forward to a strong showing in their upcoming races at Martinsville Speedway
