Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion crew chief Chad Knaus is here this week and the podcast starts with news that Knaus didn’t even realize. The 2020 season is going to be his 20th full year as a crew chief and that has him reflecting a bit, which also helps from the younger group of guys on the 24 team who ask him about previous years. Knaus also explains what has been on the team’s agenda this offseason, including focus on the new Camaro and changing some team personnel around; how Knaus has been challenged in the last year than ever before; digesting how the 2019 season went with William Byron; what went into building a relationship with Byron and the certain way in which Knaus treated him. Plus, what goes into building a successful race team? If Knaus has changed the way he approaches the job; if his mentality has been different on the 24 versus years on the 48; looking ahead to another year with the aero package; thoughts on the 2021 car; sharing what is on the checklist for this season with the 24 team.
