There will also be many familiar faces from the Bullet crew returning. Bill Harkins-team manager and car chief; Deborah Meek - business manager and scorer; Jay McGhee-front tire changer and lead mechanic; Ernie Morse - Tire Specialist; Dave Ward - tire carrier; Poncho McGhee - sign board; Keith Bishop - Webmaster and Gene Clark the elder statesman of the team who keeps the shop clean and in good order for the crew. We currently have a tire carrier and tire changer position open and hope to fill those positions from the Northern Ohio region so the team can continue with full crew pit stop practices.
