Brad Keselowski Racing on Wednesday announced its NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver lineup for the next two races.

This weekend at Texas, Ryan Blaney will be behind the wheel of the No. 29 Cooper Standard Careers for Veterans Ford F-150.

Blaney has four wins in 57 career Truck Series starts, all with BKR. He won his most recent start (Aug. 19 at Bristol) and has placed seventh or better in his four previous starts for an average finish of 3.25.

Next week at Phoenix, 17-year-old Austin Cindric will be making his second career Truck Series start (he made his debut last weekend at Martinsville, finishing 25th).

As for the season finale at Homestead, the team said it “remains optimistic” that Austin Theriault will be able to drive. It would be Theriault’s first appearance since a very hard wreck at Las Vegas a month ago.

He suffered a 10 percent compression of his back in the incident and continues to recover. Doctors are optimistic Theriault may be recovered enough to race at Homestead.
