09:24 AM ET 12.10 | This year's championship-winning crew chief in the Sprint Cup Series will try to win one next season with the 2010 season runner-up. On Friday, Joe Gibbs Racing named Darian Grubb - who won this season's championship with driver Tony Stewart - as the new crew chief for Denny Hamlin. Grubb, who was told early during the Chase for the Cup he would not return as Stewart's crew chief next season, had been mulling several offers before deciding to join JGR. JGR released Hamlin's crew chief, Mike Ford, earlier this week.

Do you think Grubb can make Hamlin more likeable? That will be a job.

they didnt have a CC spot for him, but did offer him a different position.. grubb says hes only going to crew chief until hes about 40 (4 or 5 years iirc)
