MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- Officials of Rusty Wallace Racing announced Tuesday that Sprint Cup and Nationwide series veteran, Doug Randolph, has been named crew chief for Steve Wallace and RWR's No. 66 Toyota in the Nationwide Series.
Randolph joins RWR following stints as crew chief at such organizations as Richard Childress Racing, Earnhardt Ganassi Racing and Petty Enterprises. In his most recent Nationwide Series crew chief role, Randolph led Childress's No. 29 team and Clint Bowyer to wins at Daytona and Dover in 2009.
"I'm really looking forward to working with Steve Wallace and the 5-Hour Energy team," Randolph said. "Steve's definitely been one of the most improved drivers the last couple of years and has really developed into one of the best Nationwide Series guys out there.
"This team has a lot of potential too; I'm looking forward to continuing to build this program and hopefully being one of the contenders for the Nationwide Series championship in 2011."
Randolph replaces Scott McDougall as crew chief for the No. 66. In 2010, Wallace and McDougall finished 10th in points with a top-five and 13 top-10s.
"We're very excited to add Doug Randolph to our organization," RWR general manager Larry Carter said. "I've known Doug for a while and he's a really talented guy. He brings a lot of valuable experience to our team, including a lot of experience with the [new car]. We're all looking forward to working with him."
