KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) – Tony Stewart will have a new crew chief for his final season in NASCAR.

Stewart is retiring at the end of next season.

SHR also said Billy Scott has been named crew chief for Danica Patrick. He is most recently been a crew chief at Michael Waltrip Racing. Scott replaces Daniel Knost, who was promoted to a senior leadership position managing vehicle dynamics.
