Sirius NASCAR Radio’s Sirius Speedway with Dave Moody has learned that veteran Donnie Wingo is the leading candidate to fill the vacant crewchief position with Wood Brothers Racing. Wingo will replace David Hyder, who left the team earlier this week after overseeing the operation for the past two seasons.
Wingo most recently served as crewchief for David Ragan’s UPS Ford at Roush Fenway Racing, before being replaced earlier this month by Drew Blickensderfer. With Bill Elliott at the wheel, Wood Brothers Racing has managed two Top-20 finishes in 10 Sprint Cup Series starts this season, with a best finish of 16th at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March. A spokesperson for Wood Brothers Racing declined to comment on the story earlier today.
