Richard Childress Racing has made changes to its NASCAR Xfinity Series crew chief lineup ahead of Saturday’s race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, the elimination race in the first round of the series’ playoffs, according to a Motorsport.com report.

The team had to make a change on its No. 21 team of driver Daniel Hemric as the result of a four-race suspension of crew chief Danny Stockman Jr. because of a ballast falling out of the car during practice last weekend at Dover (Del.) International Speedway. That suspension includes all but the season-finale in November at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Car chief Clint Almquist and engineer Luke Mason also were suspended.

Randall Burnett will be the crew chief on the No. 21, beginning with Saturday’s race at Charlotte.

RCR also made a crew chief change for its No. 33 Xfinity team of Brandon Jones, replacing Nick Harrison with Brandon Thomas, who heads RCR’s Vehicle Development Group.

Harrison, meanwhile, will be moved to the No. 2 team, replacing Matt Swiderski. Austin Dillon is slated to drive the No. 2 at CMS.

Shane Wilson will remain with the No. 62 team of Brendan Gaughan, and Matt Swiderski will stay will the No. 3 team that will have Ty Dillon in its car at Charlotte.
