Veteran Nationwide Series garage man Morris Van Vleet will serve as crew chief of Brett Rowe’s #55 Faith Motorsports entry in 2011, the team announced February 11.
Van Vleet spent 2010 as crew chief for two different Nationwide Series programs, as well as some time atop the pit box in the Camping World Truck Series.
Van Vleet and Rowe worked together at Daytona and Nashville last season while both were with former Nationwide team Herd Racing.
“Morris and I work well together and have gotten to know each other pretty well the past couple of years,” Rowe said. “I couldn’t ask for a person more dedicated to what they do than Morris.”
It will be Van Vleet’s second tour with Faith Motorsports. He served as Morgan Shepherd’s crew chief on the #89 team in 2009.
Imperial Bedding Company, one of the nation’s oldest and most respected mattress makers, will serve as the primary sponsor of Brett Rowe’s #55 Nationwide Series entry at Daytona, Faith Motorsports announced February 11.
The Huntington, WV-based company’s name will appear on the upper rear quarter panels of Rowe’s red and gold Racing With Jesus stock car.
The car will be a teammate and sport a similar paint scheme to Morgan Shepherd’s #89 car which will carry signage for The Salvation Army at Daytona.
