Brad Keselowski will get more time to rest his injured leg and ankle this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway when Parker Kligerman subs for the Penske Racing driver in Friday night's Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Keselowski will be ready for Saturday night's Sprint Cup Series Irwin Tools Race Night Sprint Cup race but team management decided the best course of action was to sideline the driver for Friday's preliminary.
"Parker Kligerman will drive the No. 22 Discount Tire Dodge this weekend in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway," said Penske racing's Tim Cindric in a statement released Tuesday morning. "Brad Keselowski is still healing from an ankle fracture and strained back suffered in his testing accident at Road Atlanta earlier this month. Brad's condition will continue to be monitored on a race-by-race basis."
