Chip Ganassi, the co-owner of EGR with Teresa Earnhardt and Felix Sabates, is leaving the Earnhardt-Childress Racing engines program.
NASCAR team owner Richard Childress said Ganassi's departure will not have a major effect on the program.
"The entire engine operation is housed at our shop," Childress said Friday. "We will have some new customers next year that we'll announce later. It's a strong operation, and this really won't change much for us."
Childress added that Earnhardt-Childress Racing will supply engines for Furniture Row Racing in Sprint Cup and some Grand-Am sports car teams. He also said he has no plans to change the name of the engine program.
