Brad Keselowski’s regular crew chief, Jeremy Bullins, will not be atop the #2 Team Penske pit box for Sunday’s Goodyear 400 at Darlington Raceway. Instead, team engineer Grant Hutchens will serve as Keselowski’s crew chief for the 12th race of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season. Bullins has been sidelined as a precaution related to Team Penske’s COVID-19 protocol.
Keselowski is on the pole for Sunday’s Darlington race. He heads into the race sixth in the Cup Series driver points stands with one race win at Talladega Superspeedway. Hutchens also was Keselowski’s crew chief for the Atlanta Motor Speedway race earlier this season while Bullins served a one-race suspension for two loose or missing lug nuts in the previous race. Keselowski and Hutchens finished outside the top-20 at Atlanta after Keselowski’s involvement in an on-track incident.
Keselowski has one win at Darlington in 2018.
