Austin Dillon will have a new jackman and rear tire carrier when he competes in his first Chase for the Sprint Cup race Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway.

Adam Lewis joins Dillon’s team as the jackman, moving over from Richard Childress Racing teammate Ryan Newman’s crew. Brad Robison, a rear tire carrier, also joins the team from Newman’s since the No. 31 team did not make the playoffs .

Robison’s move allows Josh Shipplett to return to his natural position as front tire carrier for the team.

Here’s the pit crew unit for the No. 3 team:

Front tire changer - Jason Pulver

Front tire carrier - Josh Shipplett

Jackman - Adam Lewis

Rear tire changer - Brian Bottlemy

Rear tire carrier - Brad Robison

Gas man - Tyler Radar
