Roush Fenway Racing officials confirmed to Sirius XM Radio on Thursday that Darrell Wallace Jr. and Ryan Reed will have new crew chiefs in 2016.

Wallace will be working with Matt Puccia, whom worked with Greg Biffle in the Sprint Cup Series last season. Wallace finished seventh in his rookie season in the XFINITY Series with three top-fives and 14 top-10s. Puccia led Biffle to a 20th place finish in Sprint Cup points last season.

Reed will be working with Phil Gould, whom worked with Elliott Sadler in the XFINITY Series last season. Reed finished 10th in his rookie season in the XFINITY Series standings with a win at Daytona International Speedway. Gould led Sadler to a sixth place finish in points last year.

The changes to the line-up come following confirmation that Brian Pattie will crew chief for Biffle in the Sprint Cup Series, and Sadler moving to JR Motorsports as a teammate to Justin Allgaier.
