Aaron Brooks, crew chief of R2B2 Racing's Funny Car driven by Frank Hawley is leaving the team at the end of this month for a similar position with renowned Top Fuel tuner Alan Johnson's new two-car team that will debut in 2009.

The Brooks-Hawley combination has been very impressive this season despite competing in just six of the first 19 races. They earned a No. 1 qualifying position at last weekend's Carolinas Nationals in Charlotte with one of the quickest 1000-foot elapsed times of the season, 4.072 seconds. They also had a final-round appearance at Reading, Pa., last month.

Brooks is acknowledged as one of the sport's most prominent young tuners of nitromethane-fuel Funny Cars. Rob Centorbi, Brooks' assistant, will join him on Johnson's team.

"While this is a fantastic opportunity for Aaron and Rob to learn under a legend, we are saddened to see them leave." said Roger Burgess, R2B2 Racing team owner. "I wish them both the best of luck."
