Steve Addington who left Stewart-Haas Racing this past week was announced as competition director for the Phoenix Racing and crew chief of the No. 51 Chevrolet for the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
The team will compete fulltime in 2014 under owner Harry Scott, Jr.
“In my opinion Steve is the perfect guy for the job,” said Scott in a statement emailed by the team. “He is part of the Chevrolet family, the Hendrick family and I feel fortunate that he is now part of our family. I also want to thank Jimmy Elledge for stepping in at a critical time this season and serving as the interim crew chief for the past six races. We look forward to hopefully working with Jimmy again down the road.” MORE>>>
