TRG Motorsports announced that Paul Clapprood has been named interim crew chief for the No. 71 Chevy and driver Bobby Labonte. Clapprood replaces Doug Randolph starting with this weekend’s Heluva Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
Team owner Kevin Buckler said:
We are pleased to give Paul this opportunity and we wish Doug all the best. Paul has demonstrated his abilities with the car in the past and has been very dedicated to our program since we started our Sprint Cup operation. We will be on a methodical two-week process to hire a full-time crew chief and will expect an announcement after Infineon.
