The 2020 season marks the ninth year for Jeremy Bullins with Team Penske and he welcomes a new opportunity in his fifth season as NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) crew chief. After leading the No. 12 Ford Mustang team with driver Ryan Blaney for the last two seasons, Bullins and his crew transition to the No. 2 Ford Mustang in 2020 to team up with 2012 Cup Series championship driver Brad Keselowski.
The pairing represents a reunification of a Team Penske title-winning combination as Bullins was the crew chief of the No. 22 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) team that captured series titles in 2013 and 2014 with Keselowski generating victories that helped the team claim the championship in each of those seasons.
After a strong 2019 season that saw the No. 12 team score a dramatic NCS Playoff win at Talladega with Blaney behind the wheel to advance to the Round of 8 before finishing seventh in the series standings, Bullins looks to add to the legacy of the No. 2 Ford team in 2020 with Keselowski.
Growing up in North Carolina, racing was a constant presence to Bullins. His father worked on dirt late model cars in Piedmont Triad area and Bullins began accompanying his dad to the race shop and 311 Speedway in Madison, N.C., when he was just five years old. As he grew older, Bullins expanded his racing acumen to include World Karting Association go-karts and asphalt late models until he graduated from South Stokes High School in 1995. Bullins then enrolled at North Carolina State University (NCSU), where he earned a mechanical engineering degree.
After college, Bullins joined the historic Wood Brothers Racing team in October 1999 for his first position in the Cup Series. After working with ST Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and then at Robert Yates Racing, Bullins joined Richard Childress Racing (RCR) in January 2005. He helped produce nine Cup Series wins with drivers Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer over seven seasons as a race engineer at RCR.
Bullins joined Team Penske in 2012 to lead the organization’s No. 22 NXS team. The Bullins-led team hit its stride midway through the season with Keselowski scoring three wins, including the inaugural Indy 250 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In 2013, Bullins led the No. 22 team through an historic season, winning 12 races with drivers Keselowski, Joey Logano, AJ Allmendinger and Ryan Blaney. Bullins and the team captured the NXS Owner title in fine style, racking up 20 top-five finishes, 25 top-10 results and three poles.
Bullins and the No. 22 team won their second consecutive NXS Owner championship in 2014 on the strength of six wins (five by Keselowski and one with Blaney). Bullins also served as crew chief for Blaney’s first two NCS starts at Kansas Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway.
In 2015, Team Penske and Wood Brothers Racing formed a technical alliance. Blaney was tapped as driver for the team’s partial schedule with Bullins rejoining the team as crew chief. The Wood Brothers expanded to a full-season Cup Series program in 2016 as Blaney finished as runner-up in the Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings.
Bullins and Blaney enjoyed a breakout season in 2017 culminating with the best season finish since 1995 for NASCAR’s oldest running team. Blaney captured his first-career NCS victory with a thrilling win at Pocono Raceway for the Wood Brothers 99th all-time win. The victory earned the team a spot in the NASCAR Playoffs and they finished ninth in the final standings.
Bullins transitioned back to Team Penske in 2018 as the organization fielded a third full-season NCS car with Blaney. The team won the inaugural Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which allowed the team to advance to the Round of 12 in the NASCAR Playoffs. Blaney eventually finished 10th in the NCS standings, setting the stage for another championship run in 2019.
