Swan Racing will expand to a two-car Sprint Cup program for next year with drivers Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt in their Toyota Camrys.

Kligerman and Whitt were among several drivers that took a turn in Swan’s No. 30 car this season after David Stremme departed following a 25-race run. Whitt competed in seven races with a top finish of 27th at Dover in September, while Kligerman had two races and scored a top finish of 18th at Texas in November.

“The team is expecting steady improvement and we are in good position to deliver,” said Kligerman, who competed full-time this past season in the Nationwide Series and finished ninth in the standings. “Personally, I am looking forward to working with Cole as a teammate and as a competitor for Rookie of the Year honors.”

“I am really impressed by how everything is coming together for Swan Racing,” Whitt said. “This is the place to be and we are going to truly take the next step in 2014. Parker and I will learn a lot from each other next year while racing hard every lap of every race. I’m ready to get started.”

In the same team release, Swan general manager Bray Pemberton said that matters such as car numbers, the hiring of crew chiefs, and new sponsors will be determined in the coming weeks.

To accommodate the growing franchise, Swan is prepping to move into a new 25,000-square-foot shop in Statesville, North Carolina.

    Do they plan on racing or do they plan on parking/stealing?

    Swan Racing runs full races with no sponsors, much like Front Row.
