No. 29 Brad Keselowski Racing Ram News and Notes

* No. 29 BKR Ram in 2010...This weekend's WinStar World Casino 350K at Texas Motor Speedway will be the fifth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race for Brad Keselowski Racing. In the last race at Bristol Motor Speedway, Brad Keselowski piloted the truck to a seventh-place finish.

* First Timer... Parker Kligerman will make his first-career NCWTS start this weekend. Kligerman has made 12 starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, where he has one pole (Kansas -- 2009) and a top finish of eighth, which came at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in August of this year. His Kansas pole came in his first career series start.

* ARCA History... In just over one year of competition in the ARCA Re/Max Series, Kligerman put up some prolific numbers. In 23 starts, the Westport, Connecticut native scored nine wins, 14 top-five finishes and 20 top-10 finishes. He narrowly missed out on the 2009 series championship, but he did secure the Rookie of the Year title in that same year.

Team owner Brad Keselowski on helping to develop Parker Kligerman

"I'm very excited to see what Parker can do in our BKR equipment. I truly believe he has future in this sport and I'm happy to give him an opportunity to show off his talent. We're proud of what we have put together at BKR and helping young drivers is something that I want to continue to do. NASCAR has been very good to me and my family. I want to do my part to re-invest in the sport, so to speak. There are so many young guys that come into this sport with a lot of talent that never have a chance to make it because no one really takes the time to educate them on the sport. I'm not saying that I'm the best guy out there to learn from, but I will do my best to educate them on my experiences."

Parker Kligerman on making his first NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway

"I would like to thank Brad and everyone at BKR for giving me a chance to run the No. 29 truck this weekend. This is an amazing opportunity and I really appreciate the confidence Brad has in my abilities to represent his race team. With that said I know that BKR has prepared a great Ram truck and that should allow us to run up front all weekend. Having never driven a truck before, I'm going into this weekend with an open mind to learn as much as I can because I know it will only make me a better racer."
