Bugarewicz (pronounced "bug-uh-rab-ich") is an American NASCAR crew chief.[1] He currently serves as director of performance for SHR.[2] Previously he was the crew chief for the No. 10 Ford Mustang driven by Aric Almirola for Stewart-Haas Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series. He was previously the crew chief for SHR's No. 14 team, where he worked with Tony Stewart in 2016 and Clint Bowyer[3][4] from 2017-2019 before being reassigned to Almirola's team.[5] Prior to being a crew chief, he was the engineer for Kevin Harvick's No. 4 team at SHR, where he won the 2014 championship with him as well as a second-place points finish in 2015, which included a remarkable thirteen second-place race finishes and 28 top-10 race finishes for Harvick and the team that year.
