NASCAR America: Slugger Labbe says why he left Richard Childress Racing (video)

Justin Alexander will take over as the crew chief to Austin Dillon in the Cup Series due to Slugger Labbe's departure. What will it mean moving forward?

Slugger Labbe announced Monday that after six seasons, he would be leaving the No. 3 team of Austin Dillon and Richard Childress Racing.

While he does not rule out a potential return to RCR at some point in the future, for now he’s just taking a break and fielding potential opportunities from other organizations.

Justin Alexander will take over as Dillon’s crew chief immediately, just in time for arguably the most difficult race on the schedule, Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
