Melling Makes Knaus Chief

Share:
Melling Racing officials announced to media Sunday at Rockingham that Chad Knaus is the new crew chief for the No. 9 Kodiak Winston Cup team.

"Chad comes to us with a wealth of knowledge," said Mark Melling. "We're obviously very pleased that he has decided to guide our team as we transition into the Dodge program in 2001, and for the rest of this year, as well."

Knaus has been working with Ray Evernham on the Dodges, and had been the car chief with Tyler Jet Motorsports.

"What intrigues me," said Knaus, "is that we've got such a young organization with so much potential. Our driver (rookie Stacy Compton) is young, our owner is young, I'm young, and most of our guys are young. I think that closeness in age will help us."

"Chad and I have the same philosophy," said Compton, "and with his level of experience and knowledge, I just know it's going to be a good thing for Melling Racing. Next year is a big transition year for us, and I think Chad will certainly make that transition to Dodge a lot easier."
