On Thursday, NASCAR announced the promotion of a pair of competition personnel, which will see two of the sanctioning body’s three national series under new management for the 2022 season.
Brad Moran, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Managing Director since July 2016, will take over the role of NASCAR Cup Series Managing Director from Jay Fabian, beginning in 2022. Moran joined NASCAR in 2008 and has served in a number of competition-related positions in the 14 seasons since.
“The entire competition team is incredibly strong at the NASCAR Cup Series level, and I look forward to helping them grow the series at this exciting time in our sport,” Moran said. “As we introduce the Next Gen car and continue to promote the outstanding talent and personalities at NASCAR’s top level, I’m honored to help shepherd the series alongside this experienced group of teammates.”
Seth Kramlich, the Assistant Series Director of the NASCAR Xfinity Series since 2019, will move to his new position of Managing Director of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2022, a climate he’s been familiar with since joining NASCAR in 2014, after serving in multiple competition roles within the series.
“My NASCAR roots are with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, so it is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to return to one of the best series in all of NASCAR,” Kramlich said. “The Camping World Truck drivers, teams, and fans are incredibly passionate about racing, and I’m honored to be chosen to help guide this great series.”
Moran, Kramlich, and NASCAR Xfinity Series Managing Director Wayne Auton will continue to be located in the NASCAR R&D Center in Concord, North Carolina, and will report to NASCAR’s Senior Vice President of Competition, Scott Miller.
“Brad and Seth both share a racer’s mentality, and will bring knowledge, passion, and strong relationships to these important roles,” Miller said. “We look forward to their leadership as they continue to help bring the best racing to our fans at both the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series levels.”
Moran joins a strongly-built competition team in the NASCAR Cup Series for 2022, with Kip Childress as Assistant Series Director, and Carl Goodman, who will manage the technical inspections of the brand-new car. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will see Jesse Dollevoet remain in his position as Assistant Series Director and Brad Houk continuing technical inspection supervision. Wayne Auton and Eric Peterson will continue to lead the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
