Norris In, Andrews Out As Bayne's Crew Chief
Chad Norris has been named crew chief of the #16 Roush Fenway Racing NASCAR Nationwide Series Ford, driven by Trevor Bayne. Norris will assume his new position immediately, and will be atop the pit box this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. Norris, who has been with Roush Fenway since 2005, led Marcos Ambrose’s winning Nationwide Series effort last weekend in Montreal.
“I am excited for the opportunity to work with Trevor Bayne,” said Norris. “Trevor is obviously one of the most talented young drivers in the garage and I’m looking forward to working with him starting this weekend at Bristol; a track that I know means a lot to him.”
Norris takes over for Chris Andrews. Andrews’ role in the organization will be announced at a later date.
