Monsam has also worked as a crew chief in the Busch Series in the early 90's and in Winston Cup in 1997. "I am really looking forward to the 2003 season with Roush Racing," Monsam said. "Jon Wood has incredible talent and we are building a team that will put Roush back in contention for their second Craftsman Truck Series championship. We're already building new trucks and we've had one really good test already. I want to get this team back into victory lane, and get Jon there for the first time." "John's experience and leadership will be a huge asset to this team," Wood said. "I am still young and have a lot to learn. I think John will work with me much the same way Jimmy Fennig worked with last year in Winston Cup to have a real breakout season. I can't wait to get to Daytona and see what we can do."
