Ian Badtire is the crew chief of Chick Hicks and team Hostile Takeover Bank.
"Chick's loyal crew chief has been the number one guy to the second place race car for over ten years, through the good, the bad, and the ugly - and with Chick, there's a lot of ugly. He longs for the day Chick wins a Piston Cup so that he'll no longer be the second best crew chief on the circuit."
- Ian Badtire has a close resemblance to a 1992 Ford F150 Regular Cab.
- He's the only Piston Cup crew chief who was seen talking.
