Penske Racing has announced that both Jay Guy and Paul Wolfe have joined the organization as crew chiefs working with driver Brad Keselowski for the 2010 season. Roy McCauley, who has served as a Cup Series crew chief for the past four years with the team, will remain with Penske Racing and assume a leadership role within the organization.
Guy will lead the No. 12 Cup Series team, while Wolfe will serve as crew chief for the No. 22 squad that will compete full time in the Nationwide Series with Keselowski behind the wheel.
Guy, 36, most recently worked as the crew chief on the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing car driven by Regan Smith in Cup Series competition. A native of Lancaster, Pa., Guy is an experienced crew chief who has worked in the Truck Series, Nationwide Series and at the Cup Series level.
"I am really excited to join Penske Racing and I'm looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead with the No. 12 team," Guy said. "Over the years, the No. 12 team has had a lot of success, including winning the 2008 Daytona 500, and we certainly want to build on that tradition of winning. Brad is one of the most talented drivers in NASCAR and we will work together to develop his skills and make this team the best it can be."
Wolfe, a former competitor on the track, will team with Keselowski to pursue the 2010 Nationwide Series championship with the No. 22 team. The 32-year-old native of Milford, N.Y., raced in the Nationwide Series and completed his fourth season as a crew chief in 2009 as he led the charge for the No. 11 CJM Racing team with drivers Scott Lagasse Jr., Denny Hamlin and others.
"The chance to work with Penske Racing and a driver as skilled as Brad is a tremendous opportunity," Wolfe said. "With the team that we will have in place, we know that 2010 will be a special season for the No. 22 and we will work hard to make sure we are ready to meet the challenge."
"Both Jay and Paul have a lot of experience throughout all levels of motorsport competition and they each seem to get the most out of the teams and drivers they work with," Keselowski said. "I'm really looking forward to working with Jay next season in my first full season of Cup Series competition. We are also excited to race for the Nationwide Series title with Paul and the No. 22 team in 2010."
