No big surprise really.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.(AP) Kenny Francis will be Kasey Kahne's crew chief next season at Hendrick Motorsports.

The team confirmed Francis will replace Lance McGrew as crew chief of the No. 5 team in 2012. McGrew will move to a research and development role at Hendrick.

They have good communication? You can really tell by the performances.

Sign me up for a crew chief Kasey can't communicate with so well.

again i reiterate to my last post my friend. You just wait till next year, when they both actually have good equipment to work with and if kenny doesnt do well, then we have a problem. but i think its wrong you blaming the guy that got kasey all 13 wins that he has, WITH INFERIOR EQUIPMENT that is, and say its time to let him go, every place they go everything theyve been through they still keep making it work with the crap they r givin. Its easy to blame the crew chief right?
Maybe we should give him Lance Mcgrew huh? The guy that made al already bad Earnhardt get worse, and the guy that ruined mark martins last year. I mean mark martin won like 5 or so races last year and contended for a championship, and now lance cant even give mark a top ten car. thats sad.
