If you don’t like a little bit of word play, then you probably shouldn’t be rooting for Henderson Motorsports and Parker Kligerman – err, sorry, I mean Pinto Kligerbean — in Thursday Night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 200 Presented by Ohio Logistics at Bristol Motor Speedway.
With Luck’s Beans returning to sponsor Henderson Motorsports for the second straight year, the team is taking advantage of the opportunity to make an impression. Parker Kligerman’s name rail, which usually displays his full name, will instead display “Pinto Kligerman” for Thursday’s event at Bristol.
If you’ve yet to learn anything from Kligerman’s decade-long tenure in NASCAR’s top-three series, please leave this webpage knowing that Parker Kligerman will never shy away from an opportunity to do something fun, even if it’s turning his name into a bean pun.

This isn’t what the uninformed would call a “publicity stunt” either, Kligerman has a leigitimate shot to win Thursday Night’s event given his three top-fives and five top-10s in seven starts at Bristol, as well as his recent string of top-five finishes in the series. If the 31-year-old can put things together and minimize mistakes, there’s a real possibility he leaves Bristol with a trophy in hand.
The real question is, what does he do if he wins? Chug a can of beans? Smash a can of beans? Dump a can of beans on his head? There’s only one way to find out.
