NASCAR Sprint Cup Series organization Swan Racing plans to expand to two teams for 2014, according to an announcement from Swan Racing on Tuesday. Parker Kligerman and Cole Whitt will be the two drivers.

“When we launched Swan Racing, we pledged to race hard every lap of every race,” team owner Brandon Davis said. “That’s what we have done and what we will continue to do. We learned a lot this year and now is the time to plan for the long-term future by adding more resources to be more competitive.”

Both Whitt and Kligerman, among others, spent time behind the wheel of Swan’s No. 30 Toyota during the 2013 Sprint Cup Series season. After the team’s full-time driver, David Stremme was released following race 26 of the 36-race 2013 season, the organization tried out several drivers, including Whitt and Kligerman, over the course of the final 10 races of the year.

“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.”

2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series PortraitsBoth Whitt and Kligerman competed in the Nationwide Series this past season, with Whitt driving the No. 44 for Tri-Star Motorsports and Kligerman the No. 77 of Kyle Busch Motorsports. KBM shuttered its Nationwide Series operation at the end of the 2013 season.

In Sprint Cup competition for Swan Racing in 2013, Whitt made seven starts. He also gained Sprint Cup experience in 2011 and 2012, driving for Red Bull Racing, Turn One Racing and Circle Sport. In all, Whitt has 14 races of Sprint Cup experience. Kligerman, meanwhile, made two starts for Swan Racing at the end of 2013. Those two races are the extent of Kligerman’s Sprint Cup experience.

“The team is expecting steady improvement, and we are in good position to deliver,” Kligerman said. “Personally, I am looking forward to working with Cole as a teammate and as a competitor for Rookie of the Year honors.”
