Berrier joins JGR

Veteran crew chief Todd Berrier assumes a managerial role at Joe Gibb Racing.

LAS VEGAS – Todd Berrier has joined Joe Gibbs Racing.

The veteran crew chief started his new job on Monday and is expected to transition into Jimmy Makar’s role. Makar, who has been with JGR since its inception in 1992 as Dale Jarrett’s crew chief, is currently the senior vice president of racing operations.

JGR president J.D. Gibbs confirmed Berrier’s hiring on Thursday but was not certain of his title.

The second generation racer was most recently the crew chief for Furniture Row Racing and the No. 78 Chevy but transitioned out of his role over the last year. Berrier honed his crew chief skills at Richard Childress Racing starting with truck in 1997. He led Kevin Harvick to the Nationwide Series title in 2001 before graduating to Cup full-time in 2002.

Berrier has four Chase appearances, eight Cup wins, six Nationwide Series wins and four truck victories.
