DOVER, Del.—Kurt Busch will have a new pit crew, starting Sunday at Dover.
Jettisoning the under-performing No. 78 over-the-wall gang after the first two Chase races, Furniture Row Racing will use the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Nationwide Series crew to pit Busch’s car, according to a story on FoxSports.com.
The No. 2 team, which pits the NNS car of Brian Scott, will do double duty this weekend.
“We had to make a change,” Busch told FoxSports.com. “As a Chase team, you have to go up to bat each time looking to make contact, and our team had a lot of misses on pit road this year.”
Busch ranked 16th in average time on pit road during the first Chase race at Chicagoland Speedway and was 17th in that category last Sunday at New Hampshire. Busch finished fourth and 13th, respectively, in the two races.
