JGR Cup Crew Chief Taking Leave of Absence

Joe Gibbs Racing confirmed Wednesday that Monster Energy Series crew chief Dave Rogers will take personal leave for an indefinite period of time and Scott Graves will assume his role on the Number-19 Toyota for rookie driver Daniel Suarez.  Graves has been serving as X-finity Series crew chief on the team’s Number-18 entry.  His replacement will be named next week when the series resumes in Texas … Back-to-back top-ten finishes for Suarez this year have lifted him to the top of the Cup Series Rookie of the Year standings.  He carries a six-point lead over Erik Jones into the first short-track weekend of the season coming up at Martinsville Speedway.
