Steve Addington, who served as crew chief for Tony Stewart the past two seasons, will be the competition director and crew chief for Phoenix Racing's No. 51 in 2014.
The move was made official on Thursday after Addington left Stewart-Haas when Chad Johnston was named the crew chief of the No. 14 car.
Harry Scott Jr. bought the team from James Finch in September, and the team has not officially announced a driver for next season, but Justin Allgaier has been mentioned as the leading candidate for the ride.
Before coming to Stewart-Haas Racing, Addington was crew chief for both Kyle and Kurt Busch. Addington was with Kyle Busch before he moved to Penske Racing for two years. He replaced Darian Grubb atop Stewart's pit box after Stewart won the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series title.
