FORT WORTH, Texas — Earnhardt Ganassi Racing is switching engine suppliers and going away from its namesake company.
The struggling two-car team with Jamie McMurray and Juan Pablo Montoya is making the move from Earnhardt Childress Racing engines next season, when it will instead get engines from Hendrick Motorsports.
Richard Childress said Friday that he has no plans to change the name of the engine program that is housed at his team's shop. He said it's still a strong operation and that there will be new customers for next year that will be announced later.
Earnhardt Childress Racing was formed when Richard Childress Racing merged its engine-building operation with Dale Earnhardt Inc.'s Sprint Cup team in 2007. DEI then merged with Chip Ganassi Racing in late 2008 and changed its team name.
