Addington named Wypall Wipers crew chief for Infineon race

Steve Addington, crew chief of the No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota driven by Kyle Busch, has been named the Wypall Wipers crew chief of the race for Sunday’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Infineon Raceway.

Addington's crew labored throughout the weekend to get Busch a car that he felt was capable of running up front. He took the lead 33 laps into the road-course event and went on to earn his fifth win of the season.

“I had a game plan on when we would pit all along," said Addington, who brought Busch to pit road twice in the race.

The Wypall Wipers Crew Chief Challenge is a season-long contest. Following each race, a panel will vote to determine which crew chief demonstrated the most outstanding strategy and leadership during the race. It isn’t necessarily the crew chief that goes to victory lane, but the crew chief that makes the biggest difference for his team.
