CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) There was no shortage of candidates to replace Steve Letarte as Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s crew chief

The list of applicants was long, but Hendrick Motorsports has always liked to groom its own talent. So the organization didn't have to look very far for the next leader of the No. 88 Chevrolet.
