Joey Logano, driver of the No. 19 Reese Towpower Carbon Forged Ford F-Series, will make his inaugural start for Brad Keselowski Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) during the North Carolina Lottery 200 at Rockingham Speedway on Sunday, April 14th. Logano is slated to compete in additional races for BKR throughout the 2013 season.
The Penske Racing driver will pilot the No. 19 BKR Ford F-Series in only his second career NCWTS start. Logano’s only other NCWTS start came in 2008 at Talladega, where he started 6th and finished 26th after being involved in a multi-truck wreck.
Sunday will be Logano’s second career start at Rockingham Speedway. In 2008, Logano ran his first race at Rockingham in the ARCA Series, starting first and winning — leading 257 of 312 laps.
Logano’s longtime friend, Coleman Pressley, will practice the No. 19 Reese Towpower Carbon Forged on Saturday. Logano will be competing in his No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion for Penske Racing on Saturday night in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
The No. 19 Brad Keselowski Racing entry currently sits 16th in NCWTS Owner’s points, 40 points behind the leader.
“I’m really looking forward to running Rockingham this weekend in the Reese Towpower Carbon Forged Ford F-Series. I’ve always wanted to run more NASCAR Camping World Truck races, and to be able to get back in a Truck at a place like Rockingham is awesome. I watched that race last year on TV and I was so jealous of the guys that were out there racing. Rockingham is one of the coolest tracks around. I’ve run a lot of testing laps around there in Cup cars and Nationwide cars, so I feel like I know what it takes. It should be a blast to get out there and race with the Truck Series regulars. No question, we’re aiming to wheel the BKR Ford to victory lane.” – Joey Logano
