After two seasons with Daniel Hemric and the No. 21 Richard Childress Racing team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Stockman will replace Justin Alexander, who served as Dillon’s crew chief for 58 races in 2017-18. Hemric will move up to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series next season, replacing Ryan Newman in the No. 31 Chevrolet with crew chief Luke Lambert at the helm.

Dillon and Stockman have a successful history together, winning the Camping World Truck Series championship in 2011 and the Xfinity Series title in 2013.

Stockman also served as Dillon’s crew chief for the 2018 Monster Energy Series Playoffs opener at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after Alexander chose to sit out the race due to personal reasons.
