Henderson Motorsports, one of the longest standing teams in NASCAR with look to add additional races to their 2020 schedule after a strong 10th place finish in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway last month.

In a press
release released on Wednesday, Henderson Racing indicated the team will be
looking to field additional drivers in the series as part of their new driver
developmental program.

The team
will continue to utilize their current relationship with NASCAR driver and NBCSN
analyst, Parker Kligerman.

“My
intentions with Henderson Motorsports were to build a successful platform for
any aspiring driver. Using the same principles as we use with Food Country, USA,
we focus on the quality of our brand before we offer it to our consumer,” said
Team Owner Don Henderson.

In 2019, Parker Kligerman competed in three NASCAR Truck Series races for Henderson Motorsports with one top-10 and three top-20 finishes overall. Kligerman’s best finish of the season was 10th  in the season finale at Homestead.

Kligerman
and the team saw victory lane together in the fall of 2017 when Kligerman won the
Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola at Talladega Superspeedway after starting the
event 14th on the grid.

The victory was Kligerman’s second in the series, second at Talladega and first since the 2012 season.

The team based
out of Abingdon, Virginia continues to make strides in the series after they acquired
a technical alliance with GMS Racing.

“We want to
know that was a team, we can compete week in-and-week-out. I feel as if we have
a solid foundation to now do that,” said Henderson.
