Harvick Gets New Chief

"Todd and Kevin worked great together in the Busch Series so we made the change to jumpstart the season," car owner Richard Childress said. "Gil has won races for us with Harvick and Robby Gordon, so we're glad that he is staying and will be playing a key role with the team."
Berrier was the crew chief for Harvick's Busch team in 2000 and 2001, when they teamed to win eight races, eight poles, 2000 rookie of the year honors and the 2001 championship.
Berrier becomes Harvick's third crew chief in just over two seasons. Harvick started with Kevin Hamlin when he took over the late Dale Earnhardt's ride in 2001, but Hamlin traded jobs with Martin, who was Gordon's crew chief, midway through last season.
Harvick, the 2001 Winston Cup rookie of the year, is 18th in the series points with one top-five finish this year.
