WELCOME, N.C. (AP) - Richard Childress Racing is moving crew chief Slugger Labbe into a leadership role in its research and development department.

Labbe has been crew chief for Paul Menard since 2010. The team said Wednesday that race engineer Justin Alexander will replace Labbe as crew chief for Menard following next week’s race at Charlotte.

Menard is 20th in the Sprint Cup standings.

Labbe said in a statement he is “looking forward to slowing down” his NASCAR career and spending more time with family. His initial responsibility will be helping RCR prepare for NASCAR’s 2015 rules package.
