Brad Keselowski Gains Matt McCall as 2022 Crew Chief

Crew chief Matt McCall will join Roush Fenway Racing and the No. 6 of Brad Keselowski for the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season, the team announced Nov. 2.

The veteran crew chief will be entering his eighth consecutive season on top of the pit box in 2022, as he ends his tenure with Chip Ganassi Racing, which will leave NASCAR at the end of 2021.

As a crew chief, the 40-year-old McCall has earned 98 top 10s and 30 top five results along with three wins with both Jamie McMurray and Kurt Busch since his first full-time season with CGR in 2015. Previously, McCall worked as the lead race engineer for current RFR driver Ryan Newman in 2014, the year he finished runner-up in the standings.

At CGR, McCall’s team has raced into the playoffs six out of seven years, with a best result of 10th in 2020.

Keselowski moves to the No. 6 from Team Penske in 2022. He’ll be a teammate to Chris Buescher, who returns in the No. 17.

I think all in all this is a bad move for Brad to Roush. Time will tell. Just can’t believe he’s better off there.


I think he’s planning ahead and this is his best path to what he wants.
