Go Fas Racing, crew chief Nead part ways

Go Fas Racing and crew chief Gene Nead have mutually parted ways.

Nead had been with Go Fas and the No. 32 team since late 2016, and had worked with Matt DiBenedetto in 2017 and the first two races of this season.

DiBenedetto finished 32nd in points last year and earned two top-10 finishes. Those were the first top 10s in the history of Go Fas Racing and the highest the team had finished in points.

“Gene had an integral part in building an improved program at Go Fas Racing last season, our most competitive season yet, and we wish him all the best going forward,” the team said in a statement.

NASCAR veteran Randy Cox will take over crew chief duties. Cox most recently worked for BK Racing.
