Keith Wolfe, GM/Crew Chief, No. 40 Stopain/Arthritis Foundation Chevrolet
Whether he’s been behind the wheel, turning a wrench or calling the shots from the pit box, Keith Wolfe has seen nearly all aspects of racing. Now serving as general manager and crew chief of the No. 40 Peck Motorsports Chevrolet, Wolfe looks to continue his rising career as he helps propel Todd Peck into racing’s top tiers.
Wolfe, a Pennsylvania native, started his career behind the wheel of a go-kart at age 14. He quickly moved up to the dirt ranks, driving micro-sprint and sprint cars. When Wolfe reached 20, he decided to hang up his helmet and serve as a mechanic for other Pennsylvania-based dirt series teams. At age 22, he enlisted with Chuck Bown to learn asphalt racing and began working with stock car teams in the Hooters Pro Cup Series. It was in the Hooters Pro Cup Series, Wolfe met Mike and Todd Peck and began a bright future. Wolfe was hired on their team as a mechanic, but his talent quickly rose to the role of crew chief in 2008. In their first season together, Wolfe and Peck reached victory lane.
The team has gone on to compete in the K&N Pro Series and will vie in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2012
