* Parker Kligerman, driver of the Team 42 Racing Dodge Charger in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, will attempt to make his first NASCAR start at Chicagoland Speedway this weekend in the Dollar General 300 powered by Coca-Cola. Kligerman has one previous start at Chicago in the ARCA RE/MAX Series (September, 2009) where he started fourth and finished 17th at the 1.5-mile oval.

Parker Kligerman:

What are your thoughts about this weekend's Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway?

"I'm always excited to get to the race track, but I'm even more excited this weekend because I've had the opportunity to compete at Chicagoland Speedway in the ARCA RE/MAX Series. I enjoy Chicago; it's unique and definitely fast compared to other intermediate tracks. It's high-banked which creates a lot of side-by-side racing. I would definitely consider it a driver's race track.

"I'm looking forward to competing in the Team 42 Dodge alongside crew chief Chris Carrier. Everyone's been working really hard and we've made some significant improvements across the board. Hopefully, we'll be able to build upon the success we had last weekend in Daytona."

Crew Chief Chris Carrier:

What are your thoughts for this weekend's race at Chicagoland Speedway?

"I'm really looking forward to this weekend's race at Chicagoland Speedway. It is a neat, fast race track. We ran the ARCA RE/MAX Series program with Parker at Chicago last year and we are excited to get back. Last week at Daytona was a positive experience for all of us and we are going to carry that momentum forward. The troops over at Team 42 have been working hard these last couple of weeks and we are all excited to return to the race track with Parker behind the wheel."
