Team Penske shakes up pit crews on Cup Series playoff teams

Team Penske has shaken up its pit crews in hopes of maximizing its chances at winning a second consecutive NASCAR Cup Series championship.

Heading into this weekend’s race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, the pit crews of teams of Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Ryan Blaney have changes.

Logano and Blaney still remain in contention to win the 2019 series title.

Keselowski’s pit crew, one of the organization’s most consistent this season, has been sent to Blaney’s No. 12 team. Two members of Blaney’s crew have moved over to Logano’s crew, including jackman Graham Stoddard, who was on Logano’s championship-winning crew last season.

Keselowski will complete the remainder of the season with a crew composed of a mix of guys from the Nos. 22 and 12 teams.

Penske officials said the change was made to provide the drivers still in the title hunt with the best assets from the company as a whole.

Asked if the late-season change to his crew gave him concern, Logano said: “No, it doesn’t concern me. We had a rookie jackman this year who has made a lot of good gains over this season, but I feel the opportunity to put basically the same team together that won the championship last year for the next few races I think was a smart play.  

“We definitely needed some speed from the pit crew side of things and putting the band back together from where it was last year when we won the championship makes sense, so I was on board with that.”
