Richard Childress Racing announced Monday that Justin Alexander will return to the No. 3 team to be Austin Dillon‘s crew chief in 2020, taking over for Danny Stockman.

The team announced that Stockman will remain with the organization in a role to be announced.

Alexander took over as Dillon’s crew chief before the 2017 Coca-Cola 600, a race Dillon won. Alexander also was Dillon’s crew chief through the 2018 season, which included Dillon’s Daytona 500 victory.

Stockman, who won championships in the Xfinity and Truck series with Dillon, took over as Dillon’s Cup crew chief this season. Dillon is 23rd in points heading into this weekend’s race at Texas Motor Speedway (3 p.m. ET Sunday on NBCSN). Dillon has three top-10 finishes in the last 24 races.
