World championship crew chief Brian Husen will take over the tuning duties on Mike Salinas’ Scrappers Racing Top Fueler in 2019 with Alan Johnson continuing his role with the team as tuning advisor.

Husen and Johnson, whose partnership goes back more than a decade, collaborated to win Top Fuel championships with Brittany Force in 2017, Shawn Langdon in 2013, and Del Worsham in 2011, will now turn their skills towards helping California-based Salinas, one of the sport’s rising stars, improve on his career-best seventh-place championship finish from 2018. The duo will be joined in the Salinas camp by crewmembers who also worked on Force's car through the end of last season.
