MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Officials of Rusty Wallace Racing (RWR) announced Tuesday that NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series veteran Doug Randolph has been named crew chief for driver Steve Wallace and RWR's No. 66 5-Hour Energy Toyota in their charge for the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series championship.

Randolph joins RWR following stints as crew chief at such organizations as Richard Childress Racing, Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing and Petty Enterprises.  In his most recent NASACAR Nationwide Series crew chief role, Randolph led Childress's No. 29 team and 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series driver champion Clint Bowyer to wins at Daytona and Dover in 2009.

Said Randolph, "I'm really looking forward to working with Steve Wallace and the 5-Hour Energy team.  Steve's definitely been one of the most improved drivers over the last couple of years and has really developed into one of the best Nationwide Series guys out there.  This team has a lot of potential too; I'm looking forward to continuing to build this program and hopefully being one of the contenders for the Nationwide Series championship in 2011."

Noted RWR General Manager Larry Carter, "We're very excited to add Doug Randolph to our organization.  I've known Doug for a while and he's a really talented guy.  He brings a lot of valuable experience to our team, including a lot of experience with the (new car).  We're all looking forward to working with him."
