Red Bull Racing has named Kevin Hamlin as crew chief for the No. 83 Toyota driven by Brian Vickers.

Hamlin's past crew chief roles include his most recent stint with Dave Blaney's No. 22 Toyota, preceded by nine years of crew chief duties with RCR drivers including Jeff Burton, Kevin Harvick, and the late Dale Earnhardt Sr. To date, Hamlin has amassed nine Cup wins; five of those with Earnhardt Sr.

Finding the right crew chief for the 83 team was a pivotal decision in an effort to restructure the foundation on that team," said Red Bull Racing Team Competition Director Elton Sawyer. "We need a crew chief with not only the right experience and background to work effectively with our driver and crew, but someone who also shares the same vision for success. We found that package with Kevin Hamlin. Our focus between now and Daytona is not only getting our cars up to speed for the season opener, but also getting Kevin up to speed working with Red Bull, Brian (Vickers) and the 83 team.
