Parker Kligerman will make his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debut in the No. 30 Swan Energy Toyota on Nov. 3 in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, the team announced Tuesday.

"Since I started racing, my dream like many young racers, was to get to the top, which means competing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series," Kligerman in a team release. "Now that Swan Racing has given me that opportunity, I hope to make the most of it. I am truly grateful for the opportunity and to Swan Racing."

Kligerman is a fulltime competitor in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the No. 77 Toyota. He is currently 10th in points with three top-five finishes and 12 top-10s. In 2012, Kligerman finished the season fifth in points in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he had one win, eight top-fives and 15 top-10 finishes.

"Parker is one of the truly gifted young drivers that will be winning races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the near future," said owner Brandon Davis. "We are really looking forward to evaluating him at the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway."
