Prior to the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports team slightly restructured its lineup.

Front and rear tire carriers, Dion Williams and Jared Erspamer, switched positions before heading to Fort Worth. As of now they remain switched.

Toward the end of the 2015 season, with Jeff Gordon piloting the Chevrolet, Williams -- originally positioned on the front -- and Erspamer -- on the rear -- swapped spots in order to improve timeliness in the team's stops. Now the pair switch back to their original positions.

The first race of the change proved to be a positive one after Elliott scored his first top-five showing in the Sprint Cup Series, even after starting from the rear of the field. He currently heads into the Bristol Motor Speedway weekend 14th in standings.
