Overstreet named crew chief for No. 92 truck team

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series organization Ricky Benton Racing announced on Tuesday that veteran crew chief Jason Overstreet has been named crew chief of the No. 92 truck team for 2012. Overstreet will also serve as team manager for RBR.

“We are very excited to have someone of Jason’s caliber on board with us for 2012,” RBR owner Ricky Benton said. “We have made great strides over the last two years with our truck program and look to grow those successes with Jason’s leadership at the shop and at the racetrack.”

Overstreet most recently competed as a crew chief in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, working with drivers Michael Annett, Brendan Gaughan and David Reutimann at Rusty Wallace Inc. in 2010 and 2011. Overstreet also previously worked with Reutimann in the Truck Series when Reutimann was a driver at Darrell Waltrip Racing early in his NASCAR career.

Prior to Overstreet’s stint at RWI in the Nationwide Series, other drivers he worked with in the Camping World Truck Series include Johnny Sauter and Justin Marks.

“I can’t wait for February,” Overstreet said. “I am looking forward to the challenge of helping build this race team in the Truck Series and having success at the track. There is a great foundation in place at RBR, and I am excited to be a part of it.”

Clay Rogers drove the No. 92 truck in 15 races in 2011 and finished 20th in points. A driver for 2012 season has not yet been named.
