Bob Pockrass of FOX Sports reports that Kurt Busch will have a different pit crew, with the exception of his usual fueler, this weekend at Richmond Raceway due to COVID protocols. Busch’s #1 Chevrolet will use crew members from Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Ross Chastain’s #42 for Saturday night’s race.
Busch is currently fourth in the point standings, 26 points above the cutoff. This weekend’s race in Richmond and next weekend’s elimination race at Bristol Motor Speedway will determine the Round of 12.
Kurt Busch has one of the best over-the-wall crews this yr but four members of that crew, all except fueler, are out for Richmond b/c contact tracing protocols. Ganassi will replace them w/members of Chastain crew. Chastain will have a mix of crew members who were on 00/7.
