Roush Fenway Racing has at least one crew chief change for 2016, adding Brian Pattie to call the shots for veteran Greg Biffle and the No. 16 Ford team next year.
Pattie first confirmed the news on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Wednesday night. A Roush Fenway Racing representative confirmed the move Thursday.
Pattie served as crew chief to Clint Bowyer with Michael Waltrip Racing's No. 15 Toyota for most of the last four seasons, switching to David Ragan and MWR's No. 55 team after the first Pocono race of 2015. The Waltrip-owned team ceased operation after the 2015 season.
Pattie replaces Matt Puccia, who had been paired with Biffle since the midway point of the 2011 season. During their time together, Biffle posted three victories and six Coors Light Pole Awards, but their most recent stretch has seen limited success. Biffle has been winless since June 2013.
The team did not confirm the remainder of Roush Fenway Racing's Sprint Cup lineup.
Bob Osborne served as crew chief for the No. 6 Ford in 2015, guiding Trevor Bayne in his first full season in NASCAR's premier series. Nick Sandler joined the No. 17 team and driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. last year in his first stint as a crew chief.
