Kligerman and fellow rookie Cole Whitt will drive Toyota Camrys for the multicar organization in 2014. Swan Racing completed its inaugural season in 2013 under the leadership of team owner Brandon Davis.
"When we launched Swan Racing we pledged to race hard every lap of every race. That's what we have done and what we will continue to do," said Davis. “We learned a lot this year and now is the time to plan for the long term future by adding more resources to be more competitive.”
Swan Racing will be moving into a new shop in Statesville, North Carolina. The 25,000-square-foot facility will provide the team enough space to accommodate the two teams and even grow if necessary.
"The team is expecting steady improvement and we are in good position to deliver," said Kligerman. "Personally, I am looking forward to working with Cole as a teammate and as a competitor for Rookie of the Year honors."
"This is an important moment for this young team," said Swan Racing general manger Bray Pemberton. "Things are falling into place and we are really looking forward to 2014. In the coming weeks we will make decisions on a number of additional details such as car numbers, hiring a crew chief and the addition of new sponsors.”
Swan Racing competed in the Cup Series in 2013 with several drivers, including Michael Waltrip in the No. 26 Toyota in the Daytona 500 featuring a special paint scheme dedicated to the victims of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Ct. David Stremme, Whitt, Kligerman, and Kevin Swindell also ran races for the team.
