Roush-Fenway Racing announced this morning that Crew Chief Bob Osbourne will no longer be on top the pit box for the #99 team. Health concerns are behind the decision. Osbourne will be replaced by Chad Norris. Norris led Roush-Fenways Research and Development testing program. He has served as crew chief to Rickey Stenhouse Jr and Trevor Bayne in limited Sprint Cup Cup starts. Bob Osbourne will become a senior member of Roush-Fenway's management team. Below is the statement made by Bob Osbourne. "I have had the pleasure of working with Carl Edwards for the past nine years and, during that time, my focus has been building a championship-caliber program. I’m proud of the 18 wins we’ve had together in Sprint Cup Series competition and our two second-place points finishes. At this time in my life, however, concerns with my health have necessitated that I change my role within the organization. This transition is not an easy one, but I’m thankful to have the full support of Jack, Carl and the entire organization. I also have every confidence in Chad Norris, and I look forward to working with him as we continue to pursue a championship in 2012. I also appreciate the privacy and respect that the community will give me and my family during this difficult time."
