Career Highlights:

Danny Stockman returns as crew chief of the No. 3 AdvoCare Chevrolet in 2013 after guiding driver  Austin Dillon to two wins, three pole awards, 16-top five and 27 top-10 finishes in his first full year as a crew chief in the NASCAR Nationwide Series in 2012.

With Stockman as crew chief, Dillon earned the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driving championship, with two wins (Nashville Superspeedway and Chicagoland Speedway) among 10 top-five and 16 top-10 finishes. In just his first year as a crew chief in NASCAR’s nationally touring truck series, Stockman guided Dillon to Rookie of the Year honors in 2010 on the strength of two wins (Iowa and Las Vegas), seven pole awards, 16 top-10 finishes and seven top-fives. Stockman earned his first win as a crew chief at Iowa Speedway in July of 2010, just 11 races into his tenure as crew chief of the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet.

Prior to joining RCR in December of 2009, Stockman was truck chief for Ron Hornaday, Jr. and the No. 33 Kevin Harvick Inc. team. Working with KHI from 2006 through 2009, Stockman earned two championships (’07 and ’09) and 18 race wins.

Stockman served as truck chief for Orleans Racing’s No. 77 team with driver Brendan Gaughan in 2005 and the No. 62 team with Steve Park in 2004. He won the 2003 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Division championship as car chief for Scott Lynch and the No. 08 Orleans Racing team, earning three wins, seven top-five and 10 top-10 finishes.

A former racer himself, Stockman drove Super Late Models on the West coast from 2000 to 2003 before employment at Orleans Racing. He is also an experienced go-kart racer, earning victories and championships in his native California.

Stockman traveled with his father, former Camping World Truck Series crew chief Gary Stockman, to half of the series’ races from 1996-1999. He is a third generation racer, as his grandfather (Harry) attempted to qualify for the 1953 Indianapolis 500, and his father (Gary) was a Camping World Truck Series crew chief for former driver Rick McCrae.
