Kyle Busch Motorsports announced Tuesday the team has signed Joey Coulter to compete for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver’s championship in 2013.
Coulter currently ranks fifth in the 2012 Truck Series driver point standings and is tied for the series lead with three poles. The 22-year-old driver picked up his first career Truck Series win at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in August and has six top-five and 13 top-10 finishes in 20 starts this season.
“Joey has been running up front, competing for wins this year and we feel like he is ready to have a breakout year," team owner Kyle Busch said. "With the personnel we have in place at KBM and the support we receive from Toyota, we’re going to do everything possible to make sure that he is in a position to bring home a championship next season.”
