A new series of videos which celebrate the 65 years of Wood Brothers Racing titled "Crew Chief Corner" are being introduced by Motorcraft / Quick Lane Racing.
The videos feature Wood Brothers Racing’s first crew chief, Hall of Famer Leonard Wood, and the Motorcraft Ford Fusion’s current crew chief Jeremy Bullins. In each video, Wood and Bullins talk about various racing issues and compare what it was like in the early days of the sport and what it’s like today. In the first installment of the series, the crew chiefs discuss the role of the crew chief. According to Wood, it was more of a hands-on job in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Bullins, admitting being envious and said today’s crew chiefs are more like managers than mechanics.
Future “Crew Chief Corner” episodes, which will be released periodically during the course of the 2015 NASCAR season, will focus on topics like inspection, tricks of the trade and the 50th anniversary of the Wood Brothers’ role in helping Jim Clark and his classic Lotus Ford to victory in the 1965 Indianapolis 500.
