KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Ryan Newman will be reunited with the crew chief who guided him to 12 career victories under a restructuring at Stewart-Haas Racing.
Matt Borland will lead the No. 39 care beginning next week at Martinsville. He and Newman spent five seasons together from 2002-2006 at Penske Racing, where they won 12 races and 37 poles.
Tony Gibson will move to the No. 10 team to crew chief for Danica Patrick. Gibson will get a jump on the 2013 season by overseeing Patrick in her final two Sprint Cup starts of the season, at Texas and Phoenix.
Team co-owner Tony Stewart and crew chief Steve Addington are not changing.
