As it turns out, Vickers won't be working with Childers beyond this season. MWR officials confirmed Friday that Childers would not be returning to the organization next season and Vickers would get a new crew chief.
In an interview with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, Childers confirmed he is headed to Stewart-Haas Racing where he will be paired next season with new driver Kevin Harvick.
The No. 6 Ford team, led by crew chief Mike Kelley, is currently competing for its third consecutive Nationwide championship. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won the title the past two seasons with the team.
