Darian Grubb has been a hot topic for months as the championship-winning crew chief revealed upon taking the title that he had already been informed he would be parting ways with Tony Stewart, then announcing his move to Denny Hamlin’s team. Grubb wants a repeat championship every bit as much as his previous owner/driver does. And look for Grubb to have an edge. A rested Hamlin will return to championship form this season and, under Grubb’s direction, will finish ahead of Stewart in the points standings, pleasing the crew chief greatly. —Lee Spencer and Rea White
