Tommy Baldwin Racing Hires Championship-Winning Crew Chief for the 2014 Season

Mooresville, NC (February 3, 2013) - Tommy Baldwin Racing announces the hiring of Todd Parrott as the Crew Chief for the No. 36 Chevrolet for the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Season.

Parrott, a well known name in the garage, has been with multiple teams within the industry for over 20 years, making his debut as a Crew Chief in 1995 with Robert Yates Racing. Following in his father Buddy’s footstep, who was inducted into the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame, Parrott has achieved several accomplishments in NASCAR. Winning a Championship in 1999 with NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett, Todd has gone on to become the third most winning active Crew Chief in the NASCAR Sprint Cup garage, with 31 wins, including two Daytona 500′s and two Brickyard 400′s.

“I’m glad to get back to the sport I love, and I’ve missed,” said Parrott. “I’m looking forward to working with Tommy, Bono, Michael, and the driver of the No. 36. I’m hoping to try and build this team into something bigger and better. I’m humbled. I’m going to continue to do what I know how to do and just try to make racecars go fast. I’m tickled to be here.”

Team owner Tommy Baldwin also commented, “We at TBR are excited to take another step and grow our company with Todd Parrott. He will be a great addition to the team. I think it’s important for everyone in this sport to have a second chance. Todd has earned that right by handling everything as a professional, by going through the NASCAR mandated recovery process. He has two Daytona 500 wins, and a Championship, which has earned him his right in the industry, and we are proud to have him on board to help take the No. 36 to a new level.”
