Brian Wilson – a NASCAR Xfinity Series championship-winning crew chief — will join Wood Brothers Racing as crew chief for rookie Harrison Burton in 2022.
First piece of business, we’d like to introduce a relative newcomer to the #NASCAR world. A fella named Brian Wilson (maybe you haven’t heard of him, he’s only got an xfinity championship and runner up finish to his name, among others) will be our crew chief starting in LA. pic.twitter.com/WfcP1u1vKu— Wood Brothers Racing (@woodbrothers21) November 11, 2021
Wilson, who has spent the last couple of years as crew chief for Team Penske’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program, will finally graduate to the NASCAR Cup Series as a full-time crew chief.
The Team Penske employee replaces Jonathan Hassler as crew chief of the No. 21, after Hassler was named the crew chief for Ryan Blaney’s No. 12 Ford Mustang in 2022.
As far as Team Penske’s Xfinity Series program, there have been no official announcements on it’s status at the time of publishing.
