In Episode 11, we sit down with Jerry Baxter: crew chief for Erik Jones and the No. 43 Chevrolet team in the NASCAR Cup Series. Originally from San Diego, CA, Jerry is one of many whose passion for racing brought them from the West Coast to the Carolinas. After a short driving career, Jerry quickly realized that his best bet was to shift focus and work to become the best crew chief he could be. Jerry spent a number of years atop in the box in both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series working for team owners such as Michael Waltrip and Kyle Busch and collecting a total of 18 race wins. Before the start of the 2020 season, Jerry became the crew chief on the No. 43 at Richard Petty Motorsports and does an excellent job leading our race team on Sundays. We appreciate his time, insight and storytelling and we hope you enjoy episode 11 of the RPM Podcast!
