After five seasons leading the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, series director Chad Little is moving on.
NASCAR did not immediately announce a replacement for Little with the Whelen Modified Tour.
Little was named Whelen Modified Tour series director in Feb. 2008.
The former Sprint Cup Series regular has been an official with NASCAR since 2005.
He had served as the advisor for the NASCAR’s Mexico based series before coming to the Modified Tour. Little replaced former series director Ed Cox.
Little started 217 Sprint Cup Series events from 1986-2002 and also ran 134 Nationwide Series events over his career. Little, a Spokane, Wash. Native was the NASCAR West Series champion in 1987.
NASCAR also announced Tuesday that Joe Balash, Nationwide Series director since 2004, will take on the new position as International Competition Liason. Wayne Auton, who had been the Truck Series director, will now serves as the Nationwide Series director.
