Rob Lyon has quit his role as King's Lynn manager - to step upstairs and run the club.
Lyon, who has enjoyed a glittering era in charge of the Stars, winning 10 major honours, will be in charge of the day-to-day business at the Adrian Flux Arena.
The move sees current chief Keith 'Buster' Chapman free to focus on his role as chairman of British Speedway, although he will be in regular contact with Lyon.
Lyon said: "This is the right time for me to take on a new challenge. I'm delighted to have this opportunity and I believe it suits all parties at King's Lynn Speedway.
"I make no apologies when I say I was looking for a new challenge after some wonderful years with the King's Lynn team, we've had so many highs and the occasional low.
"This role means I stay at the club and I'm even more involved. It's great to be able to play my part in taking the club forward and it's nice to help Buster like this with everything he has on his plate right now."
