Former Sprint Cup Series crew chief and team manager Tony Glover has been named the NASCAR Touring Series technical director.

Former crew chief Chris Wright has been named the new K&N Pro Series East director. Kip Childress, who had been the K&N Pro Series East director since 2008, has been named the K&N Pro Series West director.

“NASCAR is committed to enhancing the competition and organization throughout all of our series,” Brad Moran, NASCAR Touring Series director said in a release. “Kip Childress has provided tremendous leadership and guidance in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East over the last several years. Chris Wright brings a wealth of experience in the garage, and provides us with an opportunity to have a seamless transition.

“Having Tony Glover in the NASCAR Research & Development Center is invaluable. Tony will work closely with all of the touring series directors as NASCAR continues to provide a leading role in the advancement of short-track racing. Tony has many years of technological expertise and leadership that he brings to our series.”

Glover had 24 career wins as a Sprint Cup Series crew chief, including two Daytona 500 victories with Sterling Marlina and one with Ernie Irvan.
