Stewart-Haas Racing has made some changes to its crew chief lineup ahead of the upcoming races at Nashville Superspeewday.
Richard Boswell, who had been the crew chief for the Xfinity Series team of Riley Herbst, will now become the voice that Chase Briscoe hears in Cup Series races. Boswell was the crew chief for Briscoe from 2018-2020 where they won eight races together highlighted by six in 2020.
With Boswell moving to Briscoe’s cup team that left a spot for Davin Restivo to assume the crew chief role for Herbst and the No. 98 car in the Xfinity Series. Restivo has been the lead engineer on the No. 10 car of Aric Almirola and previously served in the same role with other cars within the organization.
“We made these changes in the best interests of the entire organization,” said Greg Zipadelli, chief competition officer, SHR. “Different people in new positions brings new perspectives. There’s still a lot of racing left to do this year, which means there’s still a lot of opportunity. We need to seize these opportunities and make the most of them, and fresh perspectives from the top of the pit box to the preparation inside the shop will help us do that.”
The former crew chief for Briscoe, Joe Klausmeier, has transitioned to a position with SHR’s vehicle performance group.
