A pair of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers had a remarkable swap this week.

Hailey Deegan and Tanner Gray swap crew chiefs at this weekend's race.

Hailey Deegan and Tanner Gray are swapping crew chiefs. Jerry Baxter now with Deegan and Mike Hillman Jr. with Grey.

Only the crew chiefs are changing, the rest of the David Gilliland Racing road crew remains the same," reports Bob Pokras.

This is an interesting trick.

The fans are excited though.

"Thanks! Our team manager needs Jerry for his incredibly successful racing career! It's about time."

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!" wrote one fan.

"I don't disagree with the move, but if there's an idea to give Hailey some help, it should have happened earlier in the season," said one fan.

One fan said, "I know why they made the change, but I don't know if it will help."

Deegan finished 26th this weekend, but expectations are still high.
