Brad Keselowski Racing announced Tuesday that Tyler Reddick will be joined by Daniel Hemric as the organization’s two drivers in the 2016 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Reddick will drive the No. 29 Cooper Standard Ford F-150, while Hemric will drive the No. 19 Ford F-150 that will be sponsored in part by California Clear Power and Cequent.

“Both Tyler and Daniel have shown a lot of success on the racetrack and have more than earned this opportunity,” Keselowski said in a team release. “We have two of the best drivers in the Series … and I’m very optimistic about our future and chance for success in 2016.”

Reddick, 19, will compete for a second full-time season with BKR in 2016. He began this season with a win at Daytona, added a second victory in the spring at Dover, and is currently third in the Truck Series championship battle, just 13 points behind series leader Erik Jones and only three points behind second-ranked and two-time defending series leader Matt Crafton.

In addition to his two wins, Reddick also has 11 top-five and 16 top-10 finishes in 20 starts.

Hemric, 24, enters this weekend’s action at Texas ranked seventh in the Truck standings. While winless, he has four top-fives, 12 top-10s and a pole in 20 starts.

Keselowski also said his team is actively pursuing sponsorship to add a third Truck to the mix with a variety of drivers behind the wheel.
