Roush Fenway Racing will have a new look in 2013.
Sources tell FOXSports.com that veteran crew chief Jimmy Fennig will move to the No. 99 team with driver Carl Edwards. Fennig replaces Chad Norris, who filled in after Bob Osborne stepped down in July due to health concerns. Norris is expected to oversee the No. 60 Nationwide Series team.
Fennig most recently guided 2003 Sprint Cup champion Matt Kenseth to his eighth Chase for the Championship berth and his second Daytona 500 victory. Kenseth is currently sixth in the point standings and has posted three wins this season despite his lame duck status.
After losing the 2011 Sprint Cup title in a tiebreaker, Edwards has struggled this season to regain his swagger. Although he signed a stout contract with Roush Fenway Racing last year, Edwards is currently 15th in the point standings and hasn't won a race since the 2011 Las Vegas event - 68 races ago.
Scott Graves, who has been working as Edwards' team engineer, will take the reins for Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s rookie campaign. Stenhouse, the defending Nationwide Series champion, currently holds a 20-point lead over Elliott Sadler with the season finale this weekend a Homestead Miami Speedway.
