Todd Gordon promoted to crew chief
MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- Penske Racing has promoted Todd Gordon to crew chief of its No. 22 Dodge.
The team does not have a driver yet since Kurt Busch left the organization last week after six seasons.
Gordon led Penske's No. 22 team in the Nationwide Series to six wins and six poles last season.
Before leaving Penske, Busch said he had hoped the team would promote from within when it filled his crew chief position.
Steve Addington left his role as crew chief at the end of the season to take the same job with reigning champion Tony Stewart.
