Daytona Beach, Fla. (5 July 2013) – When NASCAR launches the Chase to the Sprint Cup at the Chicagoland Speedway September 13-15, the race weekend will not only be the opening chapter of a championship story, it will also offer a sneak peak into the future of the sport.

Turner-Scott Motorsports, which currently has three drivers among the top-10 in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Championship competition, confirmed that young Ben Kennedy will race the No. 30 Chevrolet Silverado in the Camping World 225 at Chicagoland Speedway on Friday, September 13 as part of the big Chase kick-off weekend.

The event is one of four (Bristol, Iowa, Chicagoland, Homestead-Miami Speedway) events that Kennedy is slated to race as he eyes a full-time move up to the highly competitive truck series in 2014. Kennedy currently holds third in the NASCAR K&N East standings, and already has success behind the wheel of a truck to his credit, having scored two Pro-Truck championships in 2009.

“I can’t wait to make my Camping World Truck Series debut at Bristol with Turner-Scott, and I am excited to get the chance to build on that this season,” said Kennedy who was recently named as part of NASCAR “Next” as a talent of the soon-coming future. “I am just trying to learn as much as I can every time I go out there, so it is humbling to be included as someone to keep an eye on in the future. We are focused on having a strong run in the K&N East championship, and of course looking forward to getting the chance to race in trucks, so I just can’t wait for what’s next!”

Kennedy will be back in K&N East action at Columbus Motor Speedway July 13 for the NAPA 150.
