Dale Ferguson Named Interim Crew Chief for RWR No. 64

MOORESVILLE, NC – Officials of Rusty Wallace Racing (RWR) announced that the team’s lead engineer, Dale Ferguson, has been named interim crew chief for its newly-founded No. 64 entry in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. The No. 64 Chevrolet is piloted by David Stremme, Max Papis and Chase Austin.

Ferguson, 36, is a graduate of the West Virginia Institute of Technology and brings over 10 years of vehicle engineering experience to RWR. He joined the organization in late 2007 after a stint as lead engineer for the JR Motorsports NASCAR Nationwide Series operation. Prior to that, he also spent time as an engineer for Haas CNC Racing’s NASCAR Nationwide Series team.

Ferguson’s move to RWR has marked a reunion of sorts, as he is reunited with his former JR Motorsports driver, Shane Huffman, who serves as car chief for the team’s No. 66 entry, as well as with former JRM car chief, Ricky Cade, who will serve as car chief on the No. 64 beginning this weekend at California Speedway. With his appointment as crew chief, Ferguson is also reunited with another former teammate, No. 66 crew chief, Harold Holly, who facilitated Ferguson’s entry into racing in late 2002 while with Team Rensi.

With this move, Ferguson replaces Steve Darne at the helm of the No. 64.

Noted team owner Rusty Wallace, “Dale Ferguson is a very knowledgeable individual who has already been an enormous asset to our team as its lead engineer. With the great working relationships he already has with Harold Holly, Shane Huffman and the other guys on our No. 66 team, we feel that the communication and information flow between our teams will be stronger and that makes us a stronger team overall.”

Wallace continued, “This decision was definitely very hard to make. Steve Darne was one of our longest-serving and most loyal team members; besides that, he’s just a great individual overall. He always went above and beyond the call of duty for our team. At the end of the day, however, this is a performance-based business and competition is fierce.”
