Barbour fills in for Kelley; Reiser to chief No. 16
April 12, 2013, Staff report, NASCAR.com
Seth Barbour will fill in atop the No. 6 Cargill pit box for Roush Fenway and Trevor Bayne in tonight’s 300-mile Nationwide Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. Barbour, who normally serves as the No. 6 team’s head engineer, was slated to crew chief the No. 16 Roush Fenway NNS entry with rookie Chris Buescher in tonight’s race.
No. 6 team crew chief Mike Kelley left the track earlier in the day after not feeling well and is being treated at a local area hospital with flu-like symptoms.
Former Sprint Cup championship crew chief and current Roush Fenway vice president of competition Robbie Reiser will now serve as crew chief for Buescher and the No. 16 team in tonight’s race.
Barbour guided Buescher to a career-high seventh-place finish in his crew chief debut last month at Bristol.
