Doug Richert leaves BK Racing

After seven years, crew chief Doug Richert has parted ways with BK Racing.

Richert led Dale Earnhardt to rookie-of-the-year honors in 1979 and his first championship 1980, but now is looking to move in a new direction.

"I love the sport of motor racing," Richert told Motorsport.com. "It's all I've done my entire life. But the time had come to move on.

"I'd like to thank BK Racing and (team owner) Ron Devine for the opportunity and his dedication and the sacrifices he made for the sport."
