UPDATE: Jenna Fryer of the Associated Press reports that Matt Kenseth will have a backup crew for Sunday’s season finale, with the exception of gas man Mike Metcalf.
Fox Sports’ Bob Pockrass says the backup crew normally pits the No. 00 for StarCom Racing. StarCom will use backup crew members from other teams.

Metcalf will still gas the 42 car since he had not been around the pit crew (a 42 crew member tested positive before Phoenix). The 42 will use a crew from the 00. The 00 will use a crew made up of backups from a few teams. #nascar https://t.co/RTtf9BZ2qW

ORIGINAL POST: Justin Haley will have a new pit crew for Saturday’s Xfinity Series race because a member of his pit crew tested positive for COVID-19 this week, NBC Sports has learned.
The Kaulig Racing team gets its pit crew from Chip Ganassi Racing.
Four pit crew members that service Haley’s car in Xfinity races also service Matt Kenseth’s car in Cup events. Those four pit crew members are being quarantined.
Haley’s pit crew in Saturday’s race at Phoenix Raceway will be the group that pits Bubba Wallace’s car for Richard Petty Motorsports in the Cup races.
