Busch is attempting to drive in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same night. Kligerman is on standby for Saturday's race in Concord, North Carolina as Busch flies in after Indianapolis 500 qualifying. Busch is set to race in the May 25 Indianapolis 500 and then fly to the NASCAR race. Kligerman was selected in case Busch is unable to practice, qualify or potentially start his No. 41 Chevrolet because of a schedule conflict or logistical issue.

Kligerman has made 10 Sprint Cup starts, 51 NASCAR Nationwide Series starts, 50 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts and 23 ARCA Racing Series starts.

In the event Busch does not make it back to Charlotte on time, Kligerman will start the Coca-Cola 600. Upon Busch's arrival, Kligerman will yield the seat of the No. 41 to Busch and finish the race.
