Emphasis on Intermediate: Settling into his new home at Red Horse Racing, Parker Kligerman will travel with his No. 7 Red Horse Racing team to Atlanta Motor Speedway this Friday for the Jeff Foxworthy's Grit Chips 200. Moving up yet another spot in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series point standings after an impressive runner-up finish to teammate Timothy Peters at Bristol, Kligerman is motivated to keep the momentum rolling.
Still searching for his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory, Kligerman is optimistic about his chances at one of his favorite tracks on the circuit. Favoring the high speeds the Georgia-based track provides, Kligerman plans to put his successful intermediate track resume to good use.
"My record is probably the best on mile and half tracks," Kligerman noted. "I've put a lot of emphasis on these types of tracks just because it makes up a lot of the NASCAR schedules, no matter what series you run. I feel like I can really continue that success this weekend with the equipment Toyota and Red Horse Racing have put together. It's a great chance for us to go out and not only win, but I feel like we have a great chance to dominate too."
Weekend Appearances: Parker Kligerman will join his Red Horse Racing teammates Todd Bodine and Timothy Peters at the Atlanta Motor Speedway Fan Stage on Friday night at 6:45 pm. The drivers will be available to answer questions and greet fans in attendance.
Previous Race Recap:In just his second start driving under the Red Horse Racing banner in the No. 7 Red Horse Racing Toyota Tundra, Parker Kligerman made an impressive march through the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series field Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway. From his ninth place starting position, Kligerman and crew chief Chad Kendrick improved on the handling conditions of his Tundra with just one pit stop in the UNOH 200. Keeping his equipment spotless, Kligerman maneuvered his way to his career best finish at the half-mile track, crossing the stripe in second place.
Chassis History: Reverting to the same Toyota Tundra that took Kligerman to a fourth place finish at Michigan International Speedway just two weeks ago, crew chief Chad Kendrick and the No. 7 Red Horse Racing crew have prepared chassis number 001 for battle this weekend at Atlanta.
