Rogers replaces Graves as Suarez's crew chief

Dave Rogers is back as the crew chief of the No. 19 Joe Gibbs Racing Cup Series team for the remaining six races of the season.

Rogers had recently been serving as the technical director for the JGR Xfinity Series operation.

Team officials made the announcement Tuesday afternoon while revealing that Scott Graves is leaving the organization effective immediately. Graves had been paired with Daniel Suarez since the spring of 2017, when he replaced Rogers, who worked with the No. 19 team in 2016 with Carl Edwards and the first five races of last season with Suarez.

Rogers previously served as the crew chief for Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin. In 271 races in the NASCAR Cup Series, Rogers has 18 career wins — 13 with Busch, two with Hamlin and three with Edwards.
