Dexter Tuttle has announced changes to his Top Fuel Dragster operation. He has hired crew chiefs Jim Head and Johnny West to work with J.R. Todd.

Tuttle moved quickly to find replacements after he lost Jimmy Walsh and Danny DeGennaro just two days ago.

West will oversee the race operations for the team at Tuttle Motorsports.

“Dexter and I have been friends for many years and I am willing to help him through this transition period,” Head said.

Head is 10th in the Funny Car points. West also has a long background working in the NHRA.

“I want to thank Jim and Johnny for moving so quickly to help our team,” Tuttle said. “We have been fortunate because there is a two-week break in the schedule right now. That gives us time to reorganize and be ready for Gainesville (Florida, site of the ACDelco Gatornationals, March 16-18).

“I also want to thank Evan Knoll and Latrell Preston of SKULL Shine and Torco Racing Fuels and all of the racers and fans for their support.”
