Forrister, 19, has an extensive racing resume with both asphalt and dirt experience. Sunday's Menards 200 will be his stock car debut.

In addition to Toledo, Forrister will drive for Kimmel Racing in upcoming events at Lucas Oil Raceway Park at Indianapolis, the Illinois State Fairgrounds, and the DuQuoin (Ill.) State Fairgrounds.

"I'm really excited and proud to be a part of the Kimmel Racing family," said Forrister, who's attended the last two ARCA Racing Series races to become familiar with his new surroundings. "Together, we've set realistic goals and I think we'll be able to accomplish them. Our goal is to go to Toledo next weekend, have a productive weekend, and see if we can put two Kimmel Racing-prepared Fords in the top 10."

Bill Kimmel, owner of Kimmel Racing, commented on having another young gun join his stable.

"Everyone is really happy to welcome Korbin to our team," he said. "He has done some testing with us and has impressed us all. We know that he's new to these types of cars, but I think he really will adjust well. Will is also looking forward to having a teammate, and I'm thrilled to have two race cars competing at Toledo Speedway next weekend."

The Menards 200 presented by Federated Car Care will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, with live coverage available at ARCARacing.com.
