Denny Hamlin announced Friday on Twitter that he and crew chief Mike Wheeler will part after this season.

Hamlin did not state who his crew chief will be in 2019.

Wheeler, who was hand-picked by Hamlin, has been Hamlin’s crew chief since 2015. Wheeler had been Hamlin’s engineer previously.

Hamlin said of Wheeler before the 2016 season: “He’s my guy and he’s going to be my guy until I retire. We made a vow to each other that we would be working together for a long time.”

Hamlin won three races – including the Daytona 500 – with Wheeler and finished sixth in the standings in 2016. Hamlin won two races last year and finished sixth in the standings with Wheeler.

This season has not gone as well. Hamlin’s streak of having at least one victory in a season is set to end after 12 consecutive years unless he wins Sunday’s finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Hamlin enters this weekend 11th in the standings, four points behind Kyle Larson for 10th. Hamlin last finished outside the top 10 in points in 2013 when he missed four races and placed 23rd.
