Roush Fenway Racing restructures

Blizzard of NASCAR post-season changes continues with Ford Racing stalwarts.

Change is coming to Roush Fenway Racing

After the dissolution of the No. 1 XFinity Series team following Elliott Sadler’s departure, RFR “right-sized” its NXS program on Monday. 

However, despite the release of a significant number of employees, others will be hired as RFR restructures its organization. 

Kent Day, who holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University, will oversee Roush's simulation program.  Day most recently worked at MWR following his tenure at Richard Childress Racing as technical director and at Team Penske as chief engineer. 

Kurt Romberg has also been recruited by RFR. Romberg was the chief aerodynamicist at Hendrick Motorsports for 15 years. He worked at General Motors and Petty Enterprises prior to joining HMS. 

Someone with knowledge of the situation told motorsport.com the net loss of personnel would likely be 25 workers.
