Paul Clapprood Named Interim Crew Chief for Labonte TRG Motorsports announced today Paul Clapprood has been named interim crew chief for the No. 71 Chevrolet driven by Bobby Labonte in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. The change is effective immediately.
Clapprood, who takes over the crew chief duties from Doug Randolph, will be on top of the pit box for this weekend's Helavua Good! Sour Cream Dips 400 at the two-mile Michigan International Speedway.
"We are pleased to give Paul this opportunity and we wish Doug all the best," said team owner, Kevin Buckler.
