Hodges Joins Penske As NASCAR Team Manager


MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Team Penske announced Friday that Jefferson Hodges, who most recently served as General Manager and Director of Competition for Rev Racing, will join the organization as NASCAR Team Manager.

Hodges will report to Team Penske Competition Director Travis Geisler and help manage various administrative and competition-related duties for the team’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series programs.

“Joining an organization like Team Penske is a huge opportunity for me,” said Hodges. “When you look at motorsports organizations, you always find Team Penske right at the top of the list, no matter what type of racing you are talking about. To get an opportunity to work for Roger Penske, Tim Cindric (Team Penske President), Mike Nelson (VP of Operations) and all of the accomplished drivers and crew chiefs is something I’m really looking forward to.  I appreciate all the opportunities Rev Racing has provided me over the last eight years and I look forward to being even a small part of all the success that happens moving forward with Team Penske.”

Since 2011, Hodges oversaw Rev Racing’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series, NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and Legend Car teams and stable of development drivers. In addition, he has served as a crew chief in the Xfinity Series, the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, ARCA, K&N Pro Series East and late models.

Hodges has also worked with Team Penske numerous times over the past few years, serving as a spotter for select races across its NASCAR programs, including wins with Sam Hornish Jr. in the Xfinity Series, Cindric in ARCA and, most notably, with Keselowski during the 2018 Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
