Crew Chief Change For Dale Earnhardt Jr?

Following dismal results over the last 13 races, it appears that Lance McGrew may be on his way out as crew chief for Dale Earnhardt Jr and the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports team, according to Tom Bowles of Sports Illustrated.

Despite public comments that McGrew and ┬áDale Jr would be together in 2011, it appears the rumor mill is buzzing that a move may be in the works. Ron Malec’s name has been thrown around a lot. But, Bowles doesn’t think that will happen because he’s a crucial piece of Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 team.

Alan Gustafson’s name has also been thrown around — and I predicted that might happen, just not this soon. But, as of this point, it’s just a rumor.
