Two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers will have new rides this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.
Korbin Forrister will be behind the wheel of the No. 5 All Secure Document Disposal Company Toyota Tundra for Wauters Motorsports, and Parker Kligerman will drive the No. 75 Food Country USA Chevrolet Silverado for Henderson Motorsports.
Team owner Richie Wauters will serve as the crew chief for Forrister, and Chris Carrier will be atop the pit box for Kligerman.
“Wauters Motorsports is excited to be going racing at Talladega Superspeedway. We’ve always enjoyed superspeedway racing,” Wauters said in a press release. “I’ve always had good trucks and the Toyota Tundra should be strong this weekend with Korbin Forrister behind the wheel. We are looking forward to getting some good seat time and experience for Korbin this weekend.”
Forrister, a Georgia native, has made two career Truck starts at Talladega, as well as a pair of
starts in the ARCA Racing Series.
Kligerman has made 11 total starts this season at the Truck Series level. 10 of those starts came for Ricky Benton Racing in the No. 92 Ford F-150. He also subbed for an injured John Wes Townley in the Athenian Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado for one race.
Though consistent seat-time has been an issue for Kligerman, he should feel confident heading to the largest speedway on the NASCAR circuit. He won the race in 2012 driving for Red Horse Racing, the first win of his Truck Series career. His last Truck start at Talladega came in 2013 and he finished fourth.
The Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola Camping World Truck Series race from Talladega Superspeedway is set to begin at 1:00 pm Saturday, Oct. 22 and can be seen live on FOX.
