Kligerman To Run Nationwide For Kyle Busch Motorsports In 2013, Townley To Red Horse Truck Team

Kligerman to KBM in 2013
After a tumultuous 2012 season that saw him drive in both the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series’ for Penske Racing, Brad Keselowski Racing and Red Horse Racing, expect an announcement next week that Parker Kligerman will compete full-time on the Nationwide Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2013.  

Kligerman was released from Penske’s No. 22 Nationwide Dodge in early August in favor of Ryan Blaney, and departed BKR’s Truck Series operation shortly afterward, also in favor of Blaney. He won for Red Horse at Talladega Superspeedway in only his seventh start.  

While Kligerman declined to confirm the deal today, he did say he is “excited about my prospects for 2013” and feels he will “have every opportunity to be successful” with his new team. “It’s the right place for me, at the right time.” 
KBM General Manager Rick Ren was unavailable for comment today.
John Wes Townley will reportedly fill Kligerman’s vacated seat next season, running the full NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule in 2013 with Red Horse Racing.  Townley competed in 21 of 22 Truck Series races this season, finishing 16th in points despite missing the season opener at Daytona International Speedway. While he managed only two Top-10 finishes in those 21 starts, he showed dramatic improvement over previous seasons, sustaining only two crash-related DNFs.  

He will reportedly carry his family-based Zaxby’s sponsorship to Red Horse Racing, driving the No. 7 Toyota that won twice this season, including the season-opener at Daytona with driver John King.

  2. I hate to see drivers lose their rides, but I was elated to see Ryan Blaney get a real shot to show his talent. Glad that Parker K. is going to land on his feet.
    On a side note...if some one wrote "I was reading about Parker K. getting a new ride for 2013 on"...and then made my own comments, is that still considered wrong?
