Todd Berrier will return to the top of the pit box at Dover International Speedway this weekend — this time for Kyle Busch.
Berrier, a former full-time crew chief in the sport, will replace Adam Stevens for the race while Busch’s usual crew chief serves a one-race suspension, NBC Sports reports.
Berrier’s tenure as crew chief came most famously with Richard Childress Racing, particularly with driver Kevin Harvick. He currently serves as Joe Gibbs Racing’s director of inspections.
Stevens, along with front tire changer Josh Leslie, faced a one-race suspension following last weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event at Kansas Speedway. Though Busch won the race, he was penalized after the race after his car was found to be in violation of NASCAR’s new lug nut rule.
Stevens is expected to return at Charlotte Motor Speedway for All-Star Race festivities, followed by the Coca-Cola 600 the following weekend.
Busch currently sits second in Sprint Cup points behind leader Harvick.
