Mike Shiplett moves from Stewart-Haas Racing to Richard Childress Racing
Last year, Mike Shiplett was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR. The penalty came following the NASCAR Cup Series race at the Charlotte Roval.
Stewart-Haas Racing was accused of race manipulation. Cole Custer all but came to a stop on the final lap, letting teammate Chase Briscoe pass. At the time, Briscoe was on the playoff bubble.
Cole Custer was fined $100,000. The team was docked 50 owner and driver points. In addition, crew chief Mike Shiplett was fined $100,000 and handed an indefinite suspension.
