Richard Childress Racing Makes Key Hires and Promotions to Boost NASCAR Playoff Chances

Richard Childress Racing has recently announced competition personnel changes in preparation for their upcoming race at Martinsville Speedway. The team, known for its strong history at the track and winningest Cup team status, is looking to secure two team spots in the NASCAR Playoffs.

To achieve this goal, Austin Dillon will be getting a new crew chief for the remainder of the season. Justin Alexander will be taking over from Keith Rodden, who had joined RCR and the No. 3 team at the start of the 2023 season. Additionally, Joel Keller has been appointed as the lead engineer for the No. 3 team.

Dillon’s current position in the Cup standings is 28th with one top-20 finish so far this season, placing 16th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. However, with these changes made to his crew and leadership, he is optimistic about his chances of improving his performance and securing a spot in the playoffs.

Alexander has worked with Dillon on multiple occasions in the past and has led him to victory at Martinsville Speedway in their first race together during midway through the 2017 season. He also led Dillon to a win at Daytona International Speedway in 2018.

Andy Petree, executive vice president of RCR, stated that these organizational changes were implemented to support their NASCAR Cup Series program as they gear up for the rest of the season and aim to secure two team spots in the NASCAR Playoffs. Petree expressed gratitude towards Rodden for his leadership of the No. 3 team while acknowledging his continued contributions in his new role within RCR.
