Brad Keselowski Racing fielding Austin Cindric in third truck at Phoenix
Brad Keselowski Racing will field a third entry in the Nov. 11 Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway driven by Austin Cindric.
Cindric, the son of Team Penske president Tim Cindric, will drive the No. 2 Ford sponsored by Pirek in the Lucas Oil 150. The 18-year-old driver will be attempting to make his fourth start of the year after competing at Bristol, Bowmanville and Talladega. His best finish was 18th at Bristol.
“I’m really grateful to have the opportunity to run one more race with Brad Keselowski Racing this season,” Cindric said in a press release. “Phoenix is the first time that I’ve returned to a track with the PIRTEK Ford F-150, and for me, that’s definitely important. Now I know what to expect going into practice, what I need to work on, and how to improve. We were strong in the race last year, but things just didn’t work out for us. I’m excited to go back there and apply all the things I’ve been able to learn this season.”
Cindric has five starts in the Truck Series in two seasons. He had two wins in two starts in the K&N Pro Series East this season, as well as one win in four ARCA starts.
