Nelson Piquet Jr. will continue his progress through the NASCAR ranks in 2013 after sealing a full-time Nationwide Series deal. The ex-Formula 1 driver will stay with his Camping World Truck Series team Turner Scott Motorsports, with which he won two races last season.
Piquet contested a handful of Nationwide events in 2012 alongside his Truck campaign, and took his first series victory at Road America.
"I said from the very beginning of my NASCAR career that I wanted to go about it the right way and progress through the ranks when the time was right; that I wouldn't rush," said Piquet. "I feel that 2012 was a really fantastic season for me and it provided me with the opportunity to go to the next level."
