Red Horse Racing announced on Friday, January 9th that Scott Zipadelli will crew chief for Ben Kennedy and the No. 11 Toyota Tundra team in 2015.
“Red Horse Racing is a well-respected organization that has had a lot of success in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and I am very excited to be a part of it,” Zipadelli. “Ben (Kennedy) is a talented driver and I have high expectations for him and the No. 11 team. He had an outstanding rookie season, and our goal this year is to win races and put ourselves in position to contend for the 2015 championship.”
Zipadelli became a crew chief in 2007 and has since led 17 drivers to three wins, 32 top-fives and 86 top-10 finishes in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The Berlin, Connecticut native led Kyle Larson to victory lane twice last year at Turner-Scott Motorsports.
“We are very happy to have Scott Zipadelli join the Red Horse Racing family,” team owner Tom DeLoach commented. “He is a great addition to our leadership here. I have set the bar high for this group in 2015, and expect great things.”
Kennedy won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year Award last year driving for TSM with a ninth place finish in points. It was announced last month that the 23-year-old would drive the No. 11 Toyota Tundra in 2015 for RHR. Kennedy shared his thoughts on the upcoming season in an interview earlier this week, which can be read by clicking here.
“Scott Zipadelli has great experience on top of the pit box and brings a lot to the program,” Kennedy commented. “I am really looking forward to working with him and can’t wait to unload our No. 11 Toyota Tundra at Daytona (International Speedway) in February.”
