Roush-Fenway Racing announced Tuesday morning that Bob Osborne has stepped down as crew chief on the No. 99 Ford Fusion driven by Carl Edwards in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. Roush-Fenway Racing veteran Chad Norris will replace Osborne effective immediately.
Although Edwards and the No. 99 team have been struggling this season, the crew chief change was precipitated by health issues for Osborne.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Carl Edwards for the past nine years and, during that time, my focus has been building a championship-caliber program,” Osborne said. “I’m proud of the 18 wins we’ve had together in Sprint Cup Series competition and our two second-place points finishes.” MORE>>>
