David Ingram named crew chief for Morgan Shepherd

Veteran NASCAR crew chief David Ingram has been tabbed to crew chief Morgan's Shepherd's #89 NASCAR Nationwide Series entry in 2011, Faith Motorsports announced February 3.

Ingram, who served as crew chief for K-Automotive Racing's #26 program in 2010 has been around the garage for quite a few years. Ingram also worked as a crew chief for McDonald Motorsports' #81 program in 2009.

"David is a young guy but he has a lot of racing experience and most of his experience has come from his working with smaller teams, which is good," Shepherd said. "He has been brought up racing with a small budget and limited crew members so he is one of those crew chiefs who can work on the car and understands that our people have to be able to do more than one thing for us to be successful."

Shepherd said his 2010 crew chief Gary Ravan is still with the Faith Motorsports program and has assumed other duties in the two-car shop which will feature Shepherd's #89 and Brett Rowe's #55 Nationwide entries.

An announcement about who will fill the crew chief role for Rowe's program and other crew assignments will be forthcoming, the team said.
