Pemberton started at JR Motorsports this week, becoming only the second director of competition since the company opened the position in 2007. In that role, Pemberton oversees car development and personnel management for the No. 88 and No. 7 Nationwide Series teams.

Pemberton’s selection as interim crew chief for this weekend's race comes on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Tony Eury Jr., formerly crew chief for Patrick and the No. 7 team, is no longer with the company.
