Kennedy Assumes Crew Chief Role for Michael Waltrip, While Andrews Takes Over Leadership Role for Test Teams

CORNELIUS, N.C. (March 25, 2008) -- Michael Waltrip Racing announced today that Bobby Kennedy and Paul Andrews will switch managerial roles beginning with Martinsville Speedway.

Kennedy will now serve as crew chief for Michael Waltrip and his #55 NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota Camry team as Andrews will continue in a leadership role to supervise Michael Waltrip Racing's test teams.

"Paul did a great job in helping us reach our top-35 goal and I know he will continue his diligence with our test teams for the betterment of our organization," Waltrip said. "Bobby has always been there for me and my NAPA AUTO PARTS Toyota Camry team to help with our decision making process. We have known each other for a very long time and I guess you can say that we are made for each other. Going to Martinsville with Bobby knowing we have the luxury of being in the top 35, is a relief. Now, it is all about being successful in the race."
