The team is swapping the crews of Kurt Busch and Danica Patrick after this week's race at Martinsville. With both drivers not in title contention, it's an opportunity for the teams to work with their new drivers in race conditions before 2015.
Busch's crew chief, Daniel Knost, will become Patrick's crew chief. Tony Gibson, Patrick's current crew chief and a man who just signed a contract extension with Stewart-Haas Racing, will move over to Busch's team. The Charlotte Observer first reported the switch Tuesday night

"Making this change at Texas gives us three races to get ahead of the testing ban and get a headstart on the 2015 season," Busch told
Sprint Cup Series teams are banned from testing in 2015 as part of new competition rules including less downforce and horsepower for the cars. With the focus shifted towards next season for both drivers, the teams can test and cram during the last three weeks of the season.
Before the Chase began, Stewart-Haas swapped the pit crews of Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart. Harvick's pit crew had been inconsistent on pit road during the regular season. Harvick is one of the eight drivers still alive for the championship.
Busch was eliminated after the first round of the Chase. He's currently 15th in the points standings. Patrick is 27th in the standings.
