Wingo Named McMurray's Crew Chief

Roush Fenway Racing announced that Donnie Wingo will replace Larry Carter as crew chief for the No. 26 Ford driven by Jamie McMurray.

The move reunited McMurray and Wingo, as Wingo served as McMurray’s crew chief at Chip Ganassi Racing for three seasons before McMurray left to join RFR.

Wingo said:

Jamie and I had some good runs together at Ganassi and we were pretty successful on the track. I’ve seen how well Jamie has performed in the past and I hope with coming over to Roush Fenway Racing we can build on that success. Not only do I get to work with Jamie, but I get to work with four other really good crew chiefs here at Roush Fenway Racing. With the support of them and everyone at Ford Racing, I’m really looking forward to next season.
