New Crew Chief For Waltrip

Michael Waltrip Racing announced that Buddy Sisco will move over to the No. 55 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota Camry team as crew chief for Michael Waltrip.

Sisco, who most recently served as car chief on the No. 00 Domino's Pizza Toyota Camry, begins his new role with Waltrip this weekend at Phoenix International Raceway.

"I am honored to be stepping back into the role as Michael's crew chief," said Sisco, who was Waltrip's part-time crew chief last year. "This is a position I have wanted for a long time. You have to remember that this team is a start up team with a new manufacturer to the sport. We have veteran people on our crew, but this is not a veteran team. I owe my dedication to Michael and his team, which I know has great potential."

Waltrip has confidence in Sisco's leadership abilities to deliver results.

"Buddy provides the guidance that our team needs," said Waltrip. "The core individuals that proudly wear the NAPA shield continue to be diligent. Through all of the ups and downs this season, their efforts and loyalty have not wavered. Buddy will focus solely on the performance of my No. 55 NAPA Auto Parts Toyota Camry."

Sisco has vast experience in the Nextel Cup Series and Busch Series as a crew chief. The move is another step forward in the significant reorganization taking place at MWR. In addition to Sisco's new role, Derrick Finley will take over as Lead Team Engineer on the No. 55 NAPA Toyota.
