Tony Glover Named Interim Crew Chief

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 12, 2004) --- Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates announced today that team manager Tony Glover will act as interim crew chief on the #40 Coors Light Dodge starting this weekend at Lowe's Motor Speedway, while Lee McCall has accepted a new shop-based crew chief position in the organization.

"Our team is about performance and the No. 40 team hasn't regained its championship-caliber form of just two years ago," car owner Chip Ganassi said. "Sometimes in any sport, you need to change things up in order to re-energize the team and this is one of those times."

"We have made some other changes as well to try and help the performance of the team for the remainder of the 2004 season," Ganassi added. "Tony and Sterling have been working together for a long time and hopefully they can get this team back on track. I guess we want to try and put the band back together."

Glover was the team manager of Team SABCO racing teams when Ganassi partnered with Felix Sabates in 2000. Together with Andy Graves, Glover continued his role as a team manager for Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates. Since Glover's affiliation with CGRwFS, the teams have had five wins, five poles, 32 top-fives and 62 top-10s. This is the Kingsport, Tenn. native's seventh season with the team and his 10th season partnered with driver Sterling Marlin.
