Front Row Motorsports has elected to swap crew chiefs for Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers David Ragan and Matt Tifft for the remainder of the 2019 season, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.
Beginning this weekend at Pocono Raceway, Ragan will now have Mike Kelley atop the No. 38 team pit box, while Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Tifft will have Seth Barbour call the shots for the No. 36 team.
