Roush Fenway Racing releases engineer Chip Bolin

Daytona 500 - Qualifying
Roush Fenway Racing has parted ways with long-time engineer Chip Bolin.

On Thursday morning Roush Fenway Racing confirmed the release of the 40-year-old Bolin who originally joined the organization in 1998. Bolin previously served as a crew chief and team engineer for RFR.

In 2001, Bolin became the No. 17 team engineer and was a part of the team for Matt Kenseth’s 2003 Sprint Cup championship season. He later became Kenseth’s crew chief in 2007 when Robbie Reiser was named general manager of RFR.

With Bolin gone and the futures of Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle uncertain RFR could look a lot different going forward.
