Got curious.. Anyone know what happened to Robbie Loomis? he went over to Petty after he split from Jeff Gordon, and was released from there in 2012.. But i've heard nothing about him since.


I know that Fatback McSwain, longtime crew chief for Ricky Rudd and short time for Bobby Labonte left the business completely and owns his own repair shop in NC

Matt Martin.. Wow.. That's an odd one. He was Joey Logano before Joey Logano and just one day decided he didn't want to be a race driver. I know he worked with Hendrick a while when his dad was there.



Robbie Reiser, longtime crew chief for Matt Kenseth went into the GM role at Roush-Fenway, but was booted at the end of 2016..



Ross Kenseth.. From what I've found, he's an accountant.

What about Darian Grubb ? Always thought he got a raw deal from Stewart. Wins him a Championship and promptly gets fired.. Last I knew he returned to Hendrick.

He's over at CGR. But you're right, up until this season he was with Hendrick. He was with Hamlin and JGR immediately after separating from SHR.


I was kinda surprised about Blickensderfer.. Had no idea he was with McDowell. I remember him being with Kenseth back in '09 and winning the 500.

Blick is very well traveled. Seems to have been moved out of CC duties in the middle of a season twice.

He was a crew member for Sr as his first job in NASCAR.

Speaking of.. remember back when they did the swap for Skinner and Earnhardt? McReynolds and Kevin Hamlin?

Wonder what happened to him? there was a Busch series driver named Kevin Hamlin as well, who is a spotter now.. But the former crew chief.. I don't know what happened to him.

No, he was fired. Or "His contract wasn't being renewed".. Any way you look at it, he was out and not of his own decision.

Kevin Hamlin was Kevin Harvick's crew chief for awhile, but no info is available.

I thought I read somewhere it was a mutual decision made earlier in the year, and announced at like Charlotte or one of the "Fall" races. Oh well, I must be thinking of something else.
