New owner Brandon Davis, who “pledged to stop starting and parking” when he took over Swan Racing last year, will be expanding the franchise into two teams next season and fielding cars for both Cole Whitt and Parker Kligerman, both of whom auditioned for their seats during Davis’s first full season as owner, who used multiple drivers that year, including Michael Waltrip in the Daytona 500 and David Stremme who competed in 25 races.

Whitt drove seven races with a best finish of 27th at Dover, while Kligerman drove two races with a best finish of 18th in his Sprint Cup Series debut at Texas.

Born June 22, 1991, in Alpine, CA, Cole Whitt currently drives a Toyota Camry for Swan, and is a candidate for Rookie of the Year in the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. A cousin of Brandon Whitt, he began his racing career by moving through the karting ranks before advancing to sprint cars as a development driver for Red Bull. He later made his NASCAR debut in 2010 after competing in the Camping World Series East.

Parker Kligerman was born in Westport, CT on August 8, 1990, and has driven for a number of teams including Team 42 Racing, Brad Keselowski Racing and Penske. In fact, he finished second in the ARCA RE/MAX Series in his first year as a development driver for Penske in 2009, then made his Nationwide Series debut at Kansas Speedway and won pole while driving a Penske car. He also competed for Rookie of the Year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2011.

Davis also announced that he is moving Swan from its current headquarters in Mooresville, NC into a new 25,000-sq-foot shop in Statesville to accommodate the team’s expansion.
