Larry McReynolds is returning atop the pit box for the first time in nearly 22 years.
McReynolds announced on Sunday that he would serve as the crew chief of Jeffrey Earnhardt in Saturday’s running of the NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.
This will be a one-off for both Earnhardt and McReynolds as they work together trying to put the No. 3 Chevrolet or Richard Childress Racing back in victory lane.
