Doug George (born November 5, 1960) is an American professional stock car racing driver and mechanic. He currently serves as the crew chief of the No. 7 Toyota Tundra driven by Korbin Forrister in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Racing career[edit]

He began racing professionally in the 1980s, driving for his own team. In 1990, he won the NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Series Rookie of the Year award. He later moved to the NASCAR Winston West Series, where he won Rookie of the Year honors and later, the 1995 series championship.

George made his NASCAR debut in 1995 at Sears Point International Raceway. Driving the No. 07 Olson Technology Ford Thunderbird, he qualified 42nd and finished 31st in the Winston Cup race. He ran an additional race that season at Phoenix International Raceway, where he finished 41st after a wreck. In 1996, he ran the Craftsman Truck Series in the No. 21 Ortho Ford F-150. He had a fifth-place run at Sears Point, and finished 12th in the standings, runner-up to Bryan Reffner in the Rookie of the Year battle.

In 1997, George began driving the No. 12 Chevrolet Silverado for Bob Blake. He drove for a variety of teams that season, his best finish an eighth at Sonoma for Charles Hardy. He began the 1998 in the No. 26 MB Motorsports Ford, posting two thirtieth-place finishes. Late in the season, he joined Liberty Racing, driving the No. 84 Porter-Cable Power Tools Ford and had a tenth at Sonoma, before finishing the season in Liberty's No. 98 Big Daddy's BBQ Sauce Ford, where he had his worst finish with Liberty, fifteenth.

In 1999, George drove a pair of races for Conely Racing, finishing seventeenth at Gateway International Raceway. He joined Impact Motorsports as the crew chief of the No. 12 Hot Wheels Dodge Ram for Carlos Contreras in 2000. During the season, he drove Impact's No. 86 R.C. Cola truck at Gateway following the release of Mike Cope, finishing 33rd after a wreck. He drove the No. 12 truck filling in for Contreras at Kentucky, finishing sixteenth.

Following his driving career, George worked at Morgan-Dollar Motorsports, and later at Joe Gibbs Racing, serving as crew chief for Coy Gibbs. In 2005, he joined Xpress Motorsports and was named crew chief for the No. 19 for Regan Smith, but the team shut down after two races. He joined the No. 89 team driven by Morgan Shepherd in 2006 before the team was purchased by CJM Racing. In 2007, he returned to NASCAR as crew chief for Billy Ballew Motorsports from 2008 to 2010, working most notably with Kyle Busch. He left BBM for Kevin Harvick Incorporated in 2010 to work on the No. 2 truck split by Kevin Harvick and Elliott Sadler. He moved to Turner Motorsports in 2011 before being hired by GB Racing for the 2012 season. In 2009, George was inducted into the West Coast Stock Car Hall of Fame. For 2013, he will serve as the crew chief for Scott Stenzel at MB Motorsports, following GB Racing's reduction to a part-time schedule.
