NASCAR Media Site INDIANAPOLIS- Could NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman be making his way to a Verizon IndyCar Series ride? Well, he’s going to be in Indianapolis on Sunday afternoon and will be talking to some teams about it. “I’m going to be meeting with some people,” Kligerman said Friday in Charlotte about coming to Indy. “That will be fun. We’ll see about my future.” “It’s all in the working stage, building stage and some of that is going out to Indy meeting some of those people and those sorts of things going on. My sole focus right now is when an opportunity comes it’s the right opportunity as I’ve got time on my side.” The 23-year old said he was supposed to be in Indy all weekend but he got the call from Stewart/Haas Racing to be a standby driver for Kurt Busch this weekend in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series All-Star race while Busch qualified for the 98th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Kligerman, practiced the No. 41 SHR Chevy today at Charlotte and will be on standby next weekend at the Coca-Cola 600 just in case he’s needed. He started the year off with a full-time Swan Racing ride but they folded operations last month which left him rideless. Now, he’s filling in at SHR for the immediate future but is open to some opportunities in IndyCar and is meeting this weekend to discuss a possibility of him doing so. This could be a big win for IndyCar if they can get him. He’s a young American with an open wheel background. He’s a former USAC driver that was signed as a Penske developmental driver as he went through the ARCA ranks with them. He made his way from the Truck Series and Nationwide Series all the way up to a Cup ride this year. With rides not being there on the NASCAR side, a deal with an IndyCar team could be very realistic. We will find out this weekend how that goes. “I feel like making sure the opportunity is the right one, it’s the one I want to do, it’s one I am enthused about and hopefully that can forward my career and I can do good job in.” Eric Smith is the Lead Motorsports Writer for Race Review Online.
