Richard Petty Motorsports has announced that the team has released crew chief Todd Parrott effective immediately. Parrott, the 1999 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship winning crew chief, was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR last week for violating NASCAR's substance abuse policy. He was the crew chief of Aric Almirola's #43 Ford for the last 41 races prior to Talladega.
Parrott will be replaced by Greg Ebert who will fill in on an interim role for the rest of the 2013 season. Ebert has been the car chief on the #43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford for the last two seasons. Prior to his work at Richard Petty Motorsports Ebert worked at Roush Fenway Racing for nine seasons. Team Vice President of Operations and Competition Sammy Johns was the crew chief for Almirola at Talladega last weekend.
Parrott has submitted his application for NASCAR's Road to Recovery Program. He has 31 career Sprint Cup Series victories, which is second on the active list.
