CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Brian Vickers will race for the Nationwide Series championship next season for Joe Gibbs Racing.
He returns to the series 10 years after he became the youngest champion in series history by winning the title at 20 for Hendrick Motorsports. Vickers has been driving a partial Sprint Cup schedule this season for Michael Waltrip Racing this year, and will again share that car next season with Mark Martin and Waltrip.
His Nationwide car with Gibbs will be sponsored by Dollar General.
Dollar General also will sponsor 17 Sprint Cup races for Matt Kenseth, including the Daytona 500.
