Greg Zipadelli, the competition director at Stewart-Haas Racing, brings us inside the race shop to share how even in the offseason the team is trying to stay safe while preparing for a new race season. Zipadelli also explains how the coronavirus pandemic has changed his job; what it has been like to hold virtual competition meetings with the teams; the unseen and unheard challenges races teams have dealt with during the pandemic; keeping contingency plans in place for 2021; if he thinks long-term the sport and teams will be OK; how Zipadelli grades the 2020 season for SHR; how the gap can be closed between the 4 and the other three teams; his early outlook for this season; if the disappointing end of Harvick’s ’20 season will motivate the 4 team; thoughts on how Riley Herbst can slot into a single-car Xfinity Series team; handling the mesh of personalities at SHR; the biggest thing on the offseason agenda.
