CONCORD, N.C. – Richard Petty Motorsports announced today that Greg Ebert will serve as the interim crew chief for the No. 43 Ford and driver Aric Almirola starting this weekend at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

Ebert replaces Todd Parrott, who is no longer with RPM after being suspended by NASCAR for violating the sanctioning bodies substance abuse policy.

Ebert will fill the crew chief on an interim basis for the remainder of the season. Ebert has served in the role of car chief of the No. 43 Ford for the past two seasons and has been a car chief with RPM since its inception. Before joining RPM, Ebert spent nine years at Roush Fenway Racing serving the last five of those seasons as the car chief for Matt Kenseth.

“We are confident in Greg’s leadership abilities and we will give him the resources he needs to be successful,” explained Sammy Johns, Vice President of Operations and Competition. “He is very familiar with our race program and gives us a more seamless transition. More importantly, he gives Aric the best opportunity to finish the season strong.”

NASCAR confirmed Tuesday that Parrott has been accepted into the Road to Recovery program, which is the only way Parrott will be re-instated by NASCAR.
