McCauley Crew Chief for Daytona Winner

Roy McCauley (B.S. '92, mechanical engineering) was the crew chief for Ryan Newman's winning Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team. It was McCauley's second career Cup victory as a crew chief, and first with driver Ryan Newman in the 50th running of the Daytona 500.

McCauley, 37, grew up in Davidsonville, Md. He joined Penske Racing South in 2002 as chief engineer. He made his debut as crew chief in 2004 overseeing Penske's driver development program. In 2005, McCauley oversaw a nine-race NASCAR Busch Series schedule where the team emerged with six victories.

McCauley participated in the Society of Automotive Engineers student group as a Maryland student. In a February 21 Dallas/Fort Worth Star-Telegram article, he reflects on his experience in automotive engineering: "I’ve built race cars, welded them together, hung bodies, welded chassis together," he said. "I've done just about everything. That made me pretty strong in college, because a lot of guys didn't have the hands-on experience that I did. I think that made me pretty employable right out of school."
