NASCAR veteran Donnie Wingo has been named crew chief of the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion. Wingo will assume the role immediately and will be atop the No. 21 pit box next weekend in Charlotte.
“It’s really an honor to be on top of the pit box for the No. 21,” said Wingo. “Anyone in NASCAR knows the historic significance and what the Wood Brothers have meant to NASCAR. The No. 21 is iconic in this sport and it’s a great privilege to be associated with this team. I’m eager to get to Charlotte next weekend and see what we can do as a team.”
Wingo most recently served at the crew chief for Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 6 Sprint Cup team with driver David Ragan. During his 27-year NASCAR career, he has worked with drivers ranging from Dick Trickle, Ricky Rudd, Jimmy Spencer, Juan Pablo-Montoya, Jamie McMurray and Morgan Shepherd.
The No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion and driver Bill Elliott will be back on track next week in the Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
