Swan Racing continues to audition young talent during the final 10 races of the 2013 season and this weekend will run Kevin Swindell in the No. 30 Toyota. It will mark Swindell's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut.
The 24-year-old driver has limited NASCAR experience. He has made 16 career starts in the NASCAR Nationwide Series including 10 this season for Biagi-DenBeste Racing. He has an average finish of 17.6 in the 10 races this year with a best finish of eighth at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
"They're trying to find somebody full-time for next year and move some different guys in the car and decided to use me," Swindell said. “It’s a great opportunity and just try to treat it like another day at the office."
Swan Racing turned to Cole Whitt to drive at Chicagoland Speedway on Sunday replacing David Stremme. Whitt is also scheduled to drive at Kansas, Charlotte, Talladega, and Phoenix. With Swindell in at New Hampshire and Dover, that leaves the races at Martinsville, Texas, and Homestead-Miami as still having an open seat.
Swindell has one ARCA Racing Series win in 14 starts. The win came in 2012 at Chicagoland Speedway. He is best known for winning the last four years in the Chili Bowl.
