Swindell has previously competed in four NNS races, with a best start of fifth at Dover International Speedway in 2011. This season, Swindell has made eight starts in the ARCA Racing Series, securing seven top-five starts along with four top-five finishes. The young driver scored his first stock car win at Chicagoland Speedway in July after earning the pole and leading every lap.

After taking a hiatus from racing, Biagi-DenBeste Racing has returned to the NNS to compete in five races this season. The team earned a best starting spot of 11th at Atlanta Motor Speedway and a season-best finish of 12th earlier this month at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“I can't wait to get back behind the wheel of a Nationwide car," commented Swindell. "The Biagi-DenBeste Racing team has done really well and had strong finishes in each race they have entered. I am excited to team up with them for Texas and Homestead."

“We are really pleased to have Kevin in the car," said team co-owner Fred Biagi. "Right now we are only interested in running races that we can do right and this will be a great baseline for 2013. We know Kevin can get it done. With his talent and the Swindell storied history in racing, we are expecting great things out of him." .
