Greg Ives: Career

Experiencing childhood in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Ives worked at circuits with his dad and went through eight years as a driver.

Subsequent to acquiring a mechanical engineering degree from Michigan Tech, Brian Whitesell, the Hendrick Motorsports' VP of operations, welcomed him to meet at Daytona International Speedway during the 2004 Daytona 500 race end of the week.

Ives joined the No. 24 group of four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jeff Gordon as a mechanic, placing in additional hours on the arrangement plate and chipping in at the track at whatever point the group was inside driving distance.

Around the same time, Ives was offered a position as the race engineer for the No. 48 group led by team boss Chad Knaus. His appearance matched with driver Jimmie Johnson's memorable run of five sequential Cup titles. In seven years with the No. 48 group (2006-2012), Ives was involved in 42 successes, 113 top-five completions, and 21 pole positions.

In 2013, Ives moved to JR Motorsports as group boss for Regan Smith.

Before the 2014 season, Ives was named group boss for Chase Elliott. That year, he guided the driver to three triumphs, two pole positions, 16 top-five completions and 26 top-10s on the way to winning JR Motorsports' first Xfinity Series title. Elliott became the youngest champion in arrangement history and the primary NASCAR driver actually to win a title and rookie of the year in a same season.

In 2015, Ives acquired his first Cup triumph as a team boss on May 3 at Talladega Superspeedway.

The 2017 season denoted the last of Earnhardt's Cup Series career. The No. 88 group got one top-five completion, eight top-10s and 16 top-15 finishes alongside two pole positions. On July 20, it was declared that Ives would be paired with Bowman beginning in 2018.

In 2021, Ives will remain the team boss for Bowman as they move to the No. 48 vehicle emptied by Jimmie Johnson's retirement.
