Dylan Kwasniewski gets new crew chief

Dylan Kwasniewski will have a new crew chief when the NASCAR Nationwide Series hits the track at Chicagoland Speedway.

Shannon Rursch has been hired by Turner Scott Motorsports to be the new crew chief of the No. 31 Chevrolet. He will take the position of Pat Tryson.

“I respect (Turner Scott Motorsports’) decision,” Kwasniewski told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Thursday afternoon. “It’s a shame to see Pat go obviously. We had a great relationship, and he’s a great crew chief.”

Rursch has had brief stints as car chief at Phoenix Racing and Robby Gordon Motorsports before joining TSM in December of 2009.

With Tryson as his crew chief Kwasniewski won the pole for the season opener at Daytona had recorded an eight place finish. It would be his lone top ten finish thus far. He finished 13th at New Hampshire last weekend.
