Keselowski announces '13 Truck lineup
NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski is fielding two full-time entries in the Camping World Truck Series this season.
Brad Keselowski Racing, entering its sixth season in the series, will field two full-time entries for the first time. Ryan Blaney will drive the No. 29 entry for the full season. In the second entry, the No. 19 will have multiple drivers as it runs the full schedule.
Keselowski and his Sprint Cup Penske teammate Joey Logano are scheduled to run multiple races. Blaney's father, Cup veteran and World of Outlaws champion Dave Blaney, will drive the truck in the series' first-ever dirt race at Eldora Speedway on July 24, and Florida native Ross Chastain will drive 15 races. Chad Kendrick will be the crew chief.
Last season, BKR earned its first victory with Ryan Blaney, who became the youngest winner in series history with his win at Iowa Speedway in September.
Michigan-based Cooper Standard, a global supplier of systems and components for the automotive industry, has enhanced its 2011 and 2012 involvement with BKR and will serve as the primary partner on the No. 29 Ford for the entire season. Cequent Consumer Products and Cequent Performance Products (Cequent Group), designers, manufacturers, and marketers of a broad range of vehicle and trailer products among other automotive products, has also increased its involvement and will be the primary partner on the No. 19 BKR Ford for 15 races split between the two companies. When Chastain drives, Melon 1 will be the primary sponsor.
