NEW CREW CHIEF FOR THE 'DINGER
Jimmy Elledge, released earlier this year by Chip Ganassi Racing, will return to the circuit as the new crew chief for the #84 Red Bull team, the organization announced today.
"Jimmy is a successful and very well-known crew chief in the NASCAR garage. He'll be able to provide the experience and leadership for AJ and the No. 84 team to be competitive on a weekly basis," Red Bull Racing's vice president and general manager Jay Frye said in a press release.
Elledge, who will begin working with AJ Allmendinger at Chicago this weekend, served in the same capacity for Juan Pablo Montoya's #48 car for the first part of the '08 season.
