Ford Performance is hoping to move Truck series competitor Chase Briscoe to the NASCAR Xfinity Series next season.
Briscoe, 22, currently competes full-time in the Camping World Truck Series with Brad Keselowski and is a member of Ford’s driver development program.
On Thursday, BKR owner Brad Keselowski announced he was shutting the doors on his Truck program at the conclusion of the 2017, which left Briscoe’s NASCAR future up in the air.
“Chase has done a great job in the BKR trucks in 2017 and we are fully committed to his continued development and progression in NASCAR,” Ford Performance Global Director Dave Pericak told Motorsport.com in a statement.
“We have already been active in working with our Ford teams to place him into the right Xfinity program for 2018, but right now we want his focus to be on winning races and competing in the playoffs for a championship in the Camping World Truck Series.”
The most likely Ford Xfinity options for 2018 are likely to be with Roush Fenway Racing or Stewart-Haas Racing.
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
