Osborne returns atop pit box for Roush Fenway Racing
CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Roush Fenway Racing has brought back Bob Osborne as crew chief for former Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne in the No. 6 Ford.
Osborne was a crew chief for Roush Fenway from 2004 until 2012, leading teams to 18 wins and 142 top-10 finishes, before moving over to assist with the team's engineering efforts. When Osborne stepped down, he cited health issues.
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will have a new crew chief in the No. 17 for the second straight season. Nick Sandler, who spent the last four seasons working as the head engineer for the No. 99 team under Jimmy Fennig, will call the shots in 2015. Mike Kelley has been bounced down to car chief.
