Todd Parrott was released from Richard Petty Motorsports on Monday for violating NASCAR's substance-abuse policy.
The 19-year veteran crew chief won the 1999 Sprint Cup championship with Dale Jarrett and most recently oversaw the No. 43 Ford team and driver Aric Almirola. Parrott has been with RPM since 2010. He has 31 Sprint Cup wins.
Parrott has already submitted his application for NASCAR's Road to Recovery program.
Greg Ebert will take over as the interim crew chief for Aric Almirola's team.
