“Buga”, who worked as the race engineer on the No. 4 Budweiser Chevrolet the last two seasons, replaces Chad Johnston. Bugarewicz was recruited by crew chief Rodney Childers and joined the team in December 2013 — prior to Harvick’s 2014 championship run. 

Bugarewicz earned his Masters and Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Penn State University and took a job with Roush Fenway Racing at the end of the 2005 season.

Stewart finished 28th in the 2015 Sprint Cup standings. In 17 seasons on the tour, Stewart has three Cup championships — under three different sponsors — earned 48 victories,  15 poles, 182 top 10s and 300 top-10 finishes. 

SHR is also making changes atop the pit box for Danica Patrick (Read Here) while Johnston has already found a new home at Chip Ganassi Racing (Read Here).
