Labbe To Be Menards Crew Chief

Veteran crew chief Richard "Slugger" Labbe has parted with TRG Motorsports to become crew chief for the No. 98 Ford driven by Paul Menard, according to a report. TRG owner Kevin Buckler confirmed Labbe's departure on Thursday.

The No. 98 Menard car is part of a merger under which Richard Petty Motorsports will absorb Yates Racing, which fields Menard's car. The result will be a four-car team under the RPM banner, featuring drivers Kasey Kahne, AJ Allmendinger, Elliott Sadler and Menard.

The team will field Fords in 2010, with power supplied by Roush-Yates engines.
