[August 12, 2009]  STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) -- Richard Petty Motorsports has swapped the crew chiefs for AJ Allmendinger and Reed Sorenson.

Allmendinger will begin working with Mike Shiplett this weekend at Michigan International Raceway. Sorenson will be teamed with Sammy Johns.

Allmendinger is currently 24th in the Sprint Cup Series standings, while Sorenson is 29th.

Team co-owner Richard Petty had indicated a swap was coming somewhere in the organization, which has only star Kasey Kahne in contention for a berth in the Chase for the championship.

The change comes after Allmendinger and Shiplett worked together during a tire test last week at Dover International Speedway.
