The crew chief change is another for Patrick in 2016 after the driver’s longtime sponsor GoDaddy announced its withdrawal from motorsports earlier this year. Racing her new Nature’s Bakery-sponsored No. 10 Chevrolet for Stewart-Haas racing with her third crew chief in as many years, Patrick will be looking to build on her 24th place overall finish she posted in the driver’s standings in 2015 next season.
