Parker Kligerman to Kyle Busch Motorsports?


2012 has been one strange yet, great season for young Parker Kligerman. He began the season with Brad Keselowski Racing in the Camping World Truck Series and a part-time schedule with Penske Racing in the Nationwide Series. Then, all of a sudden he had neither. He was then signed by Red Horse Racing during the off week and began charging for a championship.

Though he finished fifth and thirty points behind the eventual champion, James Buescher, the sudden change of rides really put Kligerman in contention to win the title.

It wasn’t too long ago, maybe a couple of months at the most, he made his 2013 intentions known. Kligerman made it clear that he was ready to move to the next stage in his career, the Nationwide Series.

He kept the manufacturer and team under wrap until this week, where it has been widely speculated that next week there will be a formal announcement to introduce him as the new Nationwide Series driver for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Despite showing strength and competitiveness, Kyle Busch was not pleased with KBM’s first season. He will be returning to a part-time schedule at Joe Gibbs Racing in the Nationwide Series. If he runs for KBM and splits time with Kurt Busch it will be in a second KBM entry, but that seems unlikely.

Kligerman joins KBM in addition to Joey Coulter who will join KBM in their Camping World Truck Series effort.
