Kyle Busch expressed confidence in Ben Beshore, who will be serving as his crew chief for the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season.
In a reshuffle within Joe Gibbs Racing’s personnel, Busch will have to work with Benshore as his crew chief. His previous crew chief, Adam Stevens, will link up with Christopher Bell for the No. 20 Toyota.
While Busch might be departing with his Cup Series winning crew chief, he has a lot of confidence in his new one.
“We wouldn’t have Beshore come on board if we didn’t think that he was going to be able to be the man for the job. I’m looking forward to it,” Busch said.
“He’s got the credentials, we’ve worked with him before. We kinda have a little bit of dialogue that we’ve already done in the past few years,”
The No. 18 Toyota driver has already worked with a number of crew chiefs in the past, including Steve Addington and Dave Rogers, among others. He has also worked with Benshore in the 2017 season. However, it was only for a couple of races.
Busch, however, admitted that it will be difficult for him without Stevens in the box. However, he is also looking forward to this new start.
Last season was a difficult one for Busch and Stevens as they had to wait until the race at Texas Motor Speedway in October to get their first win of the season. He will be looking for better fortunes with the new crew chief in the 2021 season.
