Kyle Busch Motorsports confirms Parker Kligerman for Nationwide ride

Parker Kligerman, whose NASCAR career looked shaky after team owners Brad Keselowski and Roger Penske released him in the summer, has landed on his feet after all. On Tuesday morning, Kyle Busch Motorsports confirmed that the 22-year-old Connecticut native will drive the team's No. 77 Toyota Camry in the full 33-race Nationwide Series schedule next year.

Kligerman moves to KBM after finishing fifth in the 2012 Camping World Truck Series. In only his second full Truck Series season, he won two poles, had eight top-five finishes, 15 top-10 finishes and won the fall race at Talladega, Ala. Both poles, six of the top-fives, eight of the top-10s and the win came in the final 11 races, after he was released from the No. 29 Dodge for Keselowski/Penske and joined the championship-level Red Horse Racing of owner Tom Deloach.
