Richard Childress Racing confirmed that two veteran, Daytona 500-winning crew chiefs will oversee the teams for Ty Dillon’s and Brian Scott’s runs in the Great American Race on Feb. 22.

Todd Parrott, who won the 500 with Dale Jarrett in 1996 and 2000, will serve as crew chief the No. 33 Chevy with Dillon. Parrott also won the July race at Daytona with Jarrett at Robert Yates Racing in 1999 – the season the No. 88 team won the Sprint Cup title. In 20 seasons, Parrott led teams to 31 wins, 144 top fives, 230 top 10s and 23 pole positions.

Parrott joined RCR at the end of last season to run its Xfinity Series program.

Slugger Labbe will oversee Scott’s effort in the No. 62 Chevy. Labbe led Michael Waltrip to his 2003 Daytona 500 victory – six months after the pair won the July race. It was the first Harley J. Earl trophy for Labbe and the second for Waltrip. Together the pair won three restrictor plate races.

Labbe guided Paul Menard to his first career victory three seasons ago at the Brickyard. Labbe stepped down as crew chief for the No. 27 Menard’s team in October to oversee RCR’s R&D dept.

This will be Dillon’s Daytona 500 debut. His brother Austin earned the pole for last year’s race. Dillon, 22, will make his third Cup start.

Scott, 27, qualified 12th for the 2014 Daytona 500 and finished 25th. He earned his first career Cup pole at Talladega in May.

Both drivers compete full-time in the Xfinity Series for RCR.
