Germain Racing announced Monday that Matt Borland has signed a multi-year agreement to be Ty Dillon‘s crew chief. Borland begins his new job immediately.
Borland was the crew chief for Paul Menard at Richard Childress Racing this past season but Menard has moved on to the Wood Brothers for 2018 and RCR has not announced who will drive the No. 27 car – or if that car will compete in 2018.
Borland replaces Bootie Barker at Germain Racing.
“Matt Borland brings a varied skill set to our No. 13 program. With his engineering skills and veteran leadership, we are looking forward to continued improvements in our team results as we move into the new season and beyond,” team owner Bob Germain Jr. said in a statement.
Dillon finished 24th in the points this past season in his rookie campaign. His best finish was 11th in the playoff races at Talladega and Phoenix.
