Joe Gibbs Racing crew chief Dave Rogers taking personal leave for indefinite period


Joe Gibbs Racing announced Wednesday night that Dave Rogers, crew chief for Daniel Suarez, will take personal leave for an indefinite period of time. The team provided no other details.

Scott Graves will assume the role of crew chief for the No. 19 team, beginning this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

Graves has been serving as the crew chief for JGR’s No. 18 Xfinity team. His replacement will be named next week.

This happens after Suarez has scored back-to-back top-10 finishes, placing seventh at both Phoenix and Auto Club Speedway.
