Vickers to drive full Nationwide season for Joe Gibbs Racing


Dollar General’s expanded sponsorship at Joe Gibbs Racing means Brian Vickers will have a full-time job with the race team in the Nationwide Series.

The retail chain announced it also would sponsor Matt Kenseth for 17 races in the No. 20 Toyota next season.

Vickers already agreed to drive eight selected Sprint Cup Series races for Michael Waltrip racing next season. His job in the Nationwide Series means he will stay in the Toyota camp.
