Brian Kesolowski Will Sub For Theriault In #29
As Fort Kent racer Austin Theriault recovers from injuries sustained in that Las Vegas race crash two weeks ago, owner Brad Kesolowski will turn to his brother, Brian, to drive the #29 truck this weekend for the Talladega race.
Brian Kesolowski is 34-years-old and has raced some in the Late Model Series, ARCA, XFINITY and Cup series. Most recently he has been a crew chief in the ARCA series.
In his race site blog, Brad Kesolowski talked about the Theriault crash.
"The impact was dramatic, and he took a hell of a hit. We're all extremely happy that he wasn't hurt much worse. I'm looking forward to seeing Austin back behind the wheel once he has recovered. He is a super professional driver and an all-around nice kid."
Theriault had made 8 starts in the #29 BKR Ford truck and was scheduled to race in last 5 races of the season. It is unclear when he will able to get back behind the wheel. He wants to return at some point this season.
