Chad Knaus makes 700th start as a crew chief at Richmond

Chad Knaus made his 700th appearance as a crew chief in the NASCAR Cup Series on Saturday night.

Knaus’ milestone became official once William Byron’s No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet rolled off in the fifth starting position for Saturday’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway. The event also marks a modest milestone for Byron — his 100th Cup Series start.

Knaus is making his second straight playoff appearance with Byron and his 17th consecutive overall — a 100 percent attendance rate since the creation of NASCAR’s 10-race playoff system in 2004.
