Brad Keselowski, driver of the No. 19 Reese Towpower Ford F-150, will make his second start this season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) this Thursday night.
Keselowski will pilot the No. 19 BKR Ford F-150 in his fourth career NCWTS start at Kentucky Speedway. Last year, Keselowski, started 17th in the UNOH 225 and brought home a hard fought 2nd place finish.
This weekend, Keselowski will be pulling triple duty, commanding the No. 22 Discount Tire Ford Mustang in Friday night’s NASCAR Nationwide Series, as well as running the No. 2 Miller Lite Ford Fusion in Saturday night’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event, which Keselowski won in 2012.
In addition to primary sponsorship from Reese Towpower, Advanced Auto Parts will be displayed on the quarter panels of the No. 19 machine.
Crew chief, Chad Kendrick, will be calling the shots for Keselowski. The No. 19 BKR team sits 12th in the NCWTS owners point standings, 75 points back from first.
Brad Keselowski on Kentucky: “I can’t wait to get to Kentucky next weekend. We’ve been very competitive there in the first two Cup races and the Truck race last year. It’s a track that really suits me because it is so rough and I tend to do well on those. I’m excited to get back into the Reese Towpower Ford and Kentucky is a great track for us to breakthrough with a win this season.”
Ryan Balney, #29 Cooper Standard Ford
Ryan Blaney, driver of the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150, will make his second career start at Kentucky Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) during Thursday night’s UNOH 225.
Last year in Blaney’s inaugural NCWTS start at Kentucky Speedway during the Kentucky 201, Blaney started 16th and finished 11th after leading 13 laps.
Cooper Standard will have over 500 employees in the grandstands to cheer on the No. 29 team on Thursday evening. Doug Randolph will lead the No. 29 Ford F-Series team as crew chief in Kentucky.
The No. 29 BKR team currently sits seventh in the NCWTS drivers point standings, 53 points back from the lead.
Ryan Blaney on Kentucky: “I’ve been looking forward to this race at Kentucky. Similar to the rest of the SMI 1.5 mile tracks on the Truck circuit, this place is fast and it’s fun to race at. Our guys have been working really hard on our Kentucky package and I’m excited to get there and test it out.”
