The former crew chief will be returning to the same venue he won at with Furniture Row Racing and Truex in 2018 and 2019.

Pearn retired from his full-time crew chief role at the conclusion of the 2019 Cup season, ending a five-year stint on top of the pit box during which he amassed 24 victories and a championship in 2017 with Truex.
