Richard Petty Motorsports made changes to its two pit crews on Monday in preparation for this weekend's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
"We're trying to move things around to improve the performance on both teams," says Sammy Johns, director of operations for RPM.
RPM swapped the rear tire combination of changer Justin Fieldler and carrier Eric Wallace from Marcos Ambrose's team with Aric Almirola's rear tire changer Kyle Power and rear tire carrier Blake Haugland. The jackmen positions were also exchanged. Rodney Fetters will now jack Almirola's No. 43 Ford while Kevin Wing is the jackman for Ambrose and the No. 9 Stanley team.
Ambrose finished fifth Sunday at Michigan. He most recently won at Watkins Glen on Aug. 12 for his second career Cup win. Ambrose and teammate Almirola are currently 17th and 21st, respectively, in the points standings.
