Joe Gibbs Racing Announces Changes to Pit Crew Management

Joe Gibbs Racing announces changes to the management structure of its pit crews with Matt Osborn now in charge of day-to-day operations and former athletic director Mike Lepp assuming new duties within the organization.


Lepp has served as Athletic Director for the past 10 years overseeing Joe Gibbs Racing pit crew operations. In his new role as Senior Athletic Advisor, Lepp will assume an increased role in marketing and public relations duties.


Lepp will continue to do public speaking events, drawing on his extensive experience in athletics and motorsports, on subjects related to pit crew training and trends related to pit stops. He remains available for media interviews on those subjects and will also be available for public speaking to JGR’s sponsors and partners. In his new role, Lepp will also assist in seeking sponsorship opportunities with companies involved in athletic apparel and equipment.


“This is the right time for me to make a change and I’m excited about my new role in the organization” said Lepp.  “I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished on pit road and I know Matt will continue to do a great job going forward.”
