WELCOME, N.C. – Austin Dillon will be partnered with a new crew chief when the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend for the Coca-Cola 600.

Justin Alexander, who has served as the crew chief of the No. 2 Rheem/Menards Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing and earned two wins last season in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, will assume crew chief responsibilities for the No. 3 Dow/American Ethanol/AAA Chevrolet SS driven by Dillon.

Alexander holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University. Prior to Richard Childress Racing, Alexander served in various engineering roles with Hendrick Motorsports. He replaces Richard “Slugger” Labbe, who is leaving Richard Childress Racing to pursue other opportunities.

Randall Burnett, who previously served as a crew chief for Richard Childress Racing’s technical partner JTG Daugherty Racing, will assume a new role as crew chief of the No. 2 Rheem/Menards Chevrolet in the NASCAR XFINITY Series beginning at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 27.

Burnett holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UNC Charlotte. Prior to JTG Daugherty Racing, he spent 10 years as an engineer at Chip Ganassi Racing.
