Crew Chief - No. 8 Chevrolet

Taylor Moyer, a first-year crew chief, joins JR Motorsports in 2019 with the goal of leading the No. 8 team to not only race wins, but a NASCAR Xfinity Series owners championship.

Moyer, a 31-year-old native of Shoreham, VT and graduate of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, comes to JR Motorsports from Hendrick Motorsports.  He began working at HMS at the age of 19 as a member of the developmental pit crew. From there, he climbed the ladder system to the parts department, chassis and body shop, and race shop – ultimately becoming a race engineer. Moyer collected one win, nine top-five and 33 top-10 finishes as a NASCAR Cup Series race engineer between working with the No. 5 team and driver Kasey Kahne and No. 24 team and rookie driver William Byron.

Moyer’s passion for motorsports began at a young age, helping childhood friends compete in sprint cars and dirt modifieds at dirt tracks in Vermont.  After taking engineering classes in high school, Moyer knew he wanted a career in racing. Following graduation, Moyer packed up his belongings and moved to Charlotte to attend engineering school at UNCC. 

When Moyer isn’t at the racetrack, he spends time on his farm where he resides in Olive Branch, NC. The young crew chief also enjoys hunting, fishing, snowboarding, mountain biking, and owns a high-end storage rack company for outdoor gear.
