UPDATE: Veteran NASCAR driver and current NASCAR on NBC pit reporter Parker Kligerman returns to Gaunt Brothers Racing (GBR) and the cockpit of the No. 96 Fast Checkout Toyota Camry for Sunday’s Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City. It will be Kligerman’s first NASCAR Cup Series start since Nov. 3, 2019 at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, which culminated a 14-race season for Kligerman in GBR’s No. 96 Toyota.
As part of the NASCAR on NBC broadcast team, Kligerman will serve as the in-race analyst during the Hollywood Casino 400, providing periodic updates from the cockpit of the No. 96 Fast Checkout Toyota. He will also pull double duty this weekend by working Saturday’s Kansas Lottery 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race in his regular role as a pit reporter during the NBC broadcast.
Making its first Cup Series appearance as a primary partner this weekend is San Francisco-based tech company Fast, whose headless checkout solution allows consumers to find and buy online with one click – without the hassle of navigating through multiple sites and payment fields. The No. 96 Fast Checkout Toyota Camry Kligerman will race Sunday at Kansas will feature a QR code on its hood and quarterpanels. Fans at the track, watching on NBCSN, or following on social media can scan the QR code (or enter the URL fast.co/hoodie) to purchase a Fast hoodie for $1. Fast made its NASCAR debut as a primary partner earlier this year with Kligerman when he raced the No. 75 Henderson Motorsports entry in the Camping World Truck Series race June 18 at Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway. Fast also joined Kligerman and the No. 75 Truck for the road-course race Aug. 7 at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, earning a strong fifth-place finish.
