FOX Sports reported Steve Addington made his official departure from Penske Racing on Monday ending his tenure as crew chief for Kurt Busch.
That story was confirmed when Penske issued a statement on Tuesday morning.
“Steve Addington is no longer with our organization. We appreciate the successes we experienced together and wish him the best in his future endeavors," the team said in the statement.
Speculation is that Addington will join Stewart-Haas racing to call the shots for Tony Stewart next season.
Stewart's current crew chief Darian Grubb said after Sunday's Ford 400 victory and clinching the Sprint Cup Series championship he would not be back with Stewart-Haas Racing next season.
