David "Dave" Rogers (born March 12, 1974) is an American crew chief for the No. 19 Toyota Camry driven by Carl Edwards in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He served as race engineer starting in 1998 for Tony Stewart's No. 20 under crew chief Greg Zipadelli. Success on that team earned him the crew chief position on the No. 11 Sprint Cup team with driver Jason Leffler.
Rogers started to crew chief for Kyle Busch in the No. 18 car late in the 2009 season after Busch missed the Chase for the Sprint Cup with former No. 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 former rowdy and controversial driver Busch. Rogers currently has 13 wins in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Rogers currently is the crew chief for Carl Edwards in the No. 19 team.
