Baldwin Returns To Crew Chief Role
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Tommy Baldwin Jr. has built Tommy Baldwin Racing by thinking outside of the box. Starting with next month’s Daytona 500, he will go back to how he got his start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series – thinking on top of it.
The 2002 Daytona 500 winning crew chief will lead the No. 7 Chevrolet SS team starting with this year’s Great American Race, with hopes of hoisting the Harley J. Earl trophy once again.
“Tommy and I already have a great deal of respect for each other,” said driver Dave Blaney. “He has a long list of accomplishments as a crew chief, and I am very excited to have him atop the pit box for the No. 7 Chevrolet SS this year.”
Baldwin won the 2002 Daytona 500 as crew chief for Ward Burton and the No. 22 Bill Davis Racing team. He won four races with that team during his tenure there. He also served as crew chief for Kasey Kahne in 2004 and 2005, winning one race in 2005.
