RBR Enterprises, Kligerman Team up for Daytona


Feb 03, 2016
CERRO GORDO, N.C. (Feb. 3, 2016) – Ricky Benton Racing (RBR) Enterprises announced Wednesday that Parker Kligerman will be behind the wheel of the No. 92 Valvoline/Advance Auto Parts/BTS Tire and Wheel Distributors/Goodyear Commercial Tire Network Ford F-150 when the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) makes its first stop of 2016 at Daytona International Speedway for the NextEra Energy Resources 250.  
 
"Over the last few years, I have watched the Ricky Benton Racing team improve their program and results,” Kligerman said. “Having this opportunity, as they come off one of their best years in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, is a massive honor.”  
 
Daytona marks a return to the NCWTS for Kligerman, who competed full time in the series in 2011 and 2012 (winning once in 2012) before moving to the Xfinity Series in 2013. In addition, he had 10 NASCAR Sprint Cup starts in 2013 and 2014. Kligerman ran the full ARCA Series schedule in 2009, finishing the year with nine wins, 14 top fives and 18 top 10s in 21 races.  
 
When not racing over the past two seasons, Kligerman served as an analyst for the NBC Sports Network.  
 
“Parker comes to us with a great racing rėsumė,” said RBR owner Ricky Benton. “He has proven that he can be competitive and win races in good equipment. Now it’s our job to make sure we give him fast trucks and put him in a position to be successful.”  
 
Meeting the team
As part of joining the RBR team, Kligerman met with employees of Black’s Tire and Auto Service, the company owned by Benton and one of the team’s primary sponsors.  
 
“I was recently able to spend time with many of the Black's Tire Service employees and learned about the passion they have for what they do,” Kligerman said. “The BTS culture is about taking care of customers and providing them with experiences that make them customers for life. I hope to provide the same level of passion and success on track.”  
 
Benton appreciates what his new driver did to ingratiate himself to his new team.  
 
“Black’s Tire and BTS is a big family,” Benton said. “A big part of why we do what we do with the race team is for our employees. In fact, many of the guys who work on our trucks on race weekends spend their weeks working for our BTS customers. It means a lot to have Parker take the time to get to know our people.”  
 
RBR 2016
Beyond the new driver, there are very few other program changes for the Ricky Benton Racing team for 2016. Mike Hester returns atop the pit box as crew chief. The team will again be running Roush-Yates-powered Fords F-150s  
 
Daytona F-150
The RBR Enterprises Ford F-150 that the team will be taking to Daytona for the NextEra Energy Resources 250 is T-2. It is the same truck that David Gilliland drove to a sixth-place finish in the 2015 running of the race. In addition to Valvoline, Advance, BTS and Goodyear Commercial Tire Network, the truck will be carrying the colors of Wynn’s and Fayetteville, N.C.-based Highland Construction.
