But Knaus is moving up, and after the 2020 season ends, he’ll become Hendrick Motorsports’ vice president of competition and will oversee the organization’s personnel four-car group, as well as the team’s technical development. He’ll also likely be integral in implementing NASCAR’s new Next-Gen car in 2022.

On a Zoom press conference Thursday, Knaus explained that while he’s excited about the promotion and eager to take on new challenges, he’s ready to cut back on traveling and spend more time with his family. His explanation echoed some of Johnson’s reasons for not wanting to be on the road full-time anymore.

“Everything is about timing, and it seemed like the right time,” Knaus said.

When FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass asked about his emotions over leaving the pit box after the season-finale at Phoenix Raceway in November, Knaus said:

“Well, there’s a ton of emotions, obviously, Bob. I’ve been doing this a long time. So, it was a tough decision to try to figure out what I wanted to do, but it’s the right decision for everybody and all parties involved. …

“Myself, my family, it’s time for me to try to make a change to where I can spend more time with them and try to help impact the company as a whole. So sitting on top of the pit box for as long as I have — I’ve been traveling full-time since I was about 16 years old, so it’s time to kind of pull back just a little bit and not be on the road every single week and spend some time with my family.”

Forty-nine-year-old Knaus has 82 career wins — all with Hendrick Motorsports and all but one with Johnson. Knaus’ most recent victory was with Byron, who took his first career checkered flag at Daytona International Speedway in August.

But while Knaus’ young family played a role in wanting to leave the pit box to become an exec, conversations about the move are not new. He said he’s been having conversations about his future with team owner Rick Hendrick and others for years.

He explained:

“Mr. Hendrick and I have been talking about this for quite some time. I’ve talked about it with Jimmie for quite some time. Jeff Gordon and I have talked about it for probably three years, maybe four, in that area. So we’ve been talking about it for quite some time. Everything has to be right on timing, and Mr. Hendrick is a master at putting things together at the right time. We feel like now is the time.

“We talked about doing it before I went over to the No. 24 car. Quite honestly, I really, really wanted to get a victory in that No. 24 car. It was something I dreamt about since I was a very young man. So to be able to get that this year definitely helped tremendously. It’s all about timing, and right now is just the right time. We’re transitioning into a new vehicle with the Next-Gen car. I really want to try to help get that car the best that we possibly can get it, so Hendrick Motorsports, our teams, our drivers can hit the ground running.”

And because Knaus obviously has known about this change longer than the rest of the NASCAR world, he’s already been savoring his final races as a crew chief. He added:

“Emotionally, in Phoenix, I’m sure it’s going to sink in. I’ve been taking it in race by race. Obviously, I’ve known about this for a while. We’ve been talking about it for a while. So, as I go to the race tracks, I’ve been soaking in the atmosphere from the drop of the green flag, looking up into the stands, seeing the fans when they’re there.
