David "Dave" Rogers is an American crew chief for the #18 M&M's Toyota Camry driven by Kyle Busch in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He served as race engineer starting in 1998 for Tony Stewart's #20 under crew chief Greg Zipadelli. Success on that team earned him the crew chief position on the #11 Sprint Cup team with driver Jason Leffler.
Rogers started to crew chief for Busch late in the 2009 season after Busch missed the Chase for the Sprint Cup with former #18 team crew chief Steve Addington. In Rogers' first full season (2010) with Busch they finished 8th in points. Rogers is known to be a conservative crew chief, usually taking four tires late in races and not gambling on fuel mileage. Rogers has played a large role in the maturation of his rowdy and controversial driver Busch. Rogers currently has ten wins in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
