All three Team Penske NASCAR Cup Series drivers will be paired with new crew chiefs for the 2020 season.
The team has not added or subtracted from its preexisting crew chief corps but chose instead to rotate the lead engineers and their respective road crews from each team to different drivers.
Paul Wolfe will work with 2018 Cup Series champion Joey Logano and the No. 22 team. Wolfe has spent his entire nine-year career as a crew chief with Brad Keselowski, where they won 29 times in 317 races in addition to the 2012 championship.
Todd Gordon will move from Logano to the No. 12 car to pair with Ryan Blaney. Gordon amassed 21 victories and the 2018 championship while working with Logano over the past seven seasons. He previously led cars driven by AJ Allmendinger and Sam Hornish.
Jeremy Bullins will move to the No. 2 car to work with Keselowski, following five years of working alongside Blaney at both Team Penske and Wood Brothers Racing.
Additionally, the road crews and pit crews will also follow their respective crew chiefs. Only the car numbers and spotters will remain the same for each driver in 2020.
All three Penske drivers qualified for the playoffs last season but failed to make the championship race. Except for the fall race at Talladega, Penske drivers were kept out of victory lane for the final 21 races of the season after winning five of the first 15.
“As we do after the completion of each season, we evaluated what we can do to better achieve our goals, and we felt it was time to make these changes to better position us to reach our potential,” said team owner Roger Penske.
“We are fortunate that we have three very strong leaders in Paul, Todd and Jeremy, who work with experienced and talented crews. Pairing each of these winning teams with different drivers and cars should provide new energy and a fresh approach for the 2020 season.”
