Bark River's Greg Ives has "done great" in his crew chief role with Nationwide Series driver Regan Smith.

"The reason being is his experience," Smith told USA Today. "What he's done with (Jimmie Johnson's) 48 team and understanding how to race for championships. The prime example is when we had a couple down weeks recently, and his knowledge of how to handle that and how to carry that, not only as a leader for the team but also mentally.

"So it's been a big benefit to me this year to have him. I think he's done awesome."

Ives changed jobs this season, moving from engineer with Johnson to crew chief for Smith and JR Motorsports.
