NASCAR’s Nationwide Series visits Bristol Motor Speedway for the first time this season for the Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 300 on Saturday, March 16th, and Parker Kligerman, driver of the No. 77 Bandits Chippers Toyota Camry for Kyle Busch Motorsports, is hoping to bounce back from last week’s 30th-place finish at Las Vegas.
"Bristol is one of the tracks that I find really fits my driving style, so it's one of my best tracks,” said Kligerman on the KBM website. “It is a finesse track - you have to take care of your race car and let the race come to you. At the same time, it's one of the most exciting and fun places. It provides great racing, a cool atmosphere and when you run well there you feel very accomplished. Bandit Chippers is back on my Camry for the first time since Daytona, so they will be our good luck charm and we can give them another strong run."
Kligerman has had success at Bristol in the past – in four previous starts at the track in Trucks and Nationwide, he has four top 10 finishes, including a runner-up finish in last year’s Truck Series race.
