Featuring Wood Brothers crew chiefs past and present.
DEARBORN, Mich. — Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing is introducing a new series of videos to celebrate 65 years of Wood Brothers Racing titled “Crew Chief Corner”.
The videos, which are approximately 3 minutes long, feature Wood Brothers Racing’s first crew chief, Hall of Famer Leonard Wood, and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion’s current crew chief Jeremy Bullins. In each video, Wood and Bullins talk about various racing issues and compare what it was like in the early days of the sport and what it’s like today.
In the first installment of the series, the crew chiefs discuss the role of the crew chief. According to Wood, it was more of a hands-on job in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Bullins, admitting being envious, says today’s crew chiefs are more like managers than mechanics.
Future “Crew Chief Corner” episodes, which will be released periodically during the course of the 2015 NASCAR season, will focus on topics like inspection, tricks of the trade and the 50th anniversary of the Wood Brothers’ role in helping Jim Clark and his classic Lotus Ford to victory in the 1965 Indianapolis 500.
