Parker Kligerman joins Henderson Motorsports for part-time Truck schedule
Parker Kligerman, a NASCAR on NBC analyst, has been announced as the second driver who will pilot Henderson Motorsports’ No. 75 entry this year in the Camping World Truck Series.
Kligerman, 26, will drive the No. 75 on speedways this year, beginning with the Feb. 24 season-opener at Daytona International Speedway. Caleb Holman, 33, returns for his sixth year of driving the No. 75 for Henderson Motorsports and will compete on short tracks and at Eldora Speedway.
The team is expecting to make 10-12 starts this year.
Holman has made at least five starts in each of the last five seasons. He has two top 10s and earned his first pole last year at Eldora.
Kligerman joins Henderson Motorsports after making 11 starts with Ricky Benton Racing in the No. 92 Truck last year.
“For me, this only helps my day job and vice versa,” Kligerman told the Bristol Herald Courier. “What you learn on the media side helps here because it gives you a whole different perspective. The cool thing is that I get to race and have fun. When this whole deal started coming together, it just made sense.”
Owned by Charlie Henderson and based in Abingdon, Virginia, Henderson Motorsports has been part of NASCAR since 1982 when it made nine starts in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
The team made 296 Xfinity Series starts from 1985-2007 and earned three wins. Holman has made every Truck start for the team since 2012.
Chris Carrier returns as crew chief for the No. 75. He and Kligerman teamed up for nine wins in the ARCA Racing Series in 2009.
