Bob Vandergriff Racing has named Ron Douglas as co-crew chief on the C&J Energy Services Top Fuel Dragster of Dave Connolly. Douglas will work side-by-side with Connolly's other co-crew chief, Jason McCulloch.

"I am really excited about joining Bob Vandergriff Racing for the 2016 season and beyond. I'm grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Jason McCulloch on the C&J Energy Services Top Fuel dragster," said Douglas. "Dave is a great driver and I'm looking forward to working with the BVR team to get the C&J dragster into the Winner's Circle. We have high expectations and lofty goals for the upcoming season."

Douglas has been involved in NHRA Drag Racing for more than two-decades, working alongside racing legend Dick LaHaie and tuning cars for Doug Herbert and Cruz Pedregon. Douglas spent the last nine seasons with John Force Racing where he put his teams in the top 10 for seven straight seasons, made 31 final round appearances with 12 wins, and helped Courtney Force set a National speed record in Nitro Funny Car this past year.

"We have our sights set on the NHRA championship this season and Ron will play a major role in getting that done," said team owner, Bob Vandergriff Jr. "Ron brings a lot of experience to the table, so I expect great things from him and Jason in 2016."

BVR also just recently announced the addition of Leah Pritchett and a Quaker State sponsored Top Fuel Dragster. Mike Guger and Joe Barlam will be co-crew chiefs on that dragster for the 2016 season.
