It was only two days ago, after Kyle Larson and Brian Scott made their NASCAR Sprint Cup Series debuts at Charlotte, that Parker Kligerman offered this tweet:

“A fun fact: As of last night, I am the only driver in the top 10 in @NASCAR_NNS points with out a cup start. #Lame

#StayTuned.”

He must have had an ace up his sleeve, because on Tuesday it was announced that stat will change. Kligerman will make his Cup debut at Texas on Nov. 3 with Swan Racing, which of late has run Cole Whitt and Kevin Swindell in its No. 30 Toyota.

“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 said 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 racing in this weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega in the No. 20 Bragg Racing Group Toyota Tundra. He won the race driving for Red Horse Racing last year.

He currently ranks 10th in the Nationwide Series points, driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

    What a total D-Bag. Wow Parker, we feel so bad for you. Yeah you’re just being hosed over. Not like there is much competition for Cup series seat time or anything. And by the way, 10th in points in the Nationwide Series doesn’t grant you your Golden Ticket into the Cup Series. Especially when there are only about 30 drivers actually collecting Nationwide points on a weekly basis.

    This guy fits right in at Kyle Busch Motorsports.
