Kurzejewski moving to trucks: On the heels of a top-10 finish in the ARCA Racing Series opener last month, Mansfield's Matt Kurzejewski is expanding his plans to include competing in some Camping World Truck Series events. The 21-year-old second-generation driver said Wednesday he will do "a handful" of Truck Series races this year along with a few more ARCA events. He said he could make his Truck Series debut as soon as the May 17 North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kurzejewski will reunite with former ARCA champion Bob Keselowski, who proposed the Truck Series deal and will serve as the crew chief. Details are still being worked out but the newly-formed Truck Series that has yet to come up with a name. The team will work out of a Mooresville, N.C-based shop owned by current Sprint Cup Champion Brad Keselowski. Bob Keselowski, who is Brad's father, will be joined by his brother, Ron, on the new Truck Series project with Kurzejewski. Ron Keselowski will act as car chief. Kurzejewski said he'll race the trucks at events on 1.5-mile tracks. He said he hopes to be able to run on the Iowa, Pocono, and Texas tracks, to name a few. (Ithaca Journal Online)(3-13-2013)

Good for him, I hope he has decent equipment that can run up front.
 
Congrats Matt! I ran quarter midgets with him back in the day and he has always been a great kid.  Also, I am sure he will have great equipment since the Keselowski's have been around the truck series since it was created.  I still remember my first ever 1:64 scale NASCAR truck diecast was Bob's black #29 Dodge.
