Kelly Bires didn't stay unemployed for long.
Bires, released from JR Motorsports two weeks ago, is slated to drive Braun Racing's No. 10 Toyota in this weekend's Bubba Burger 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Richmond International Raceway, according to NASCAR's preliminary entry list.
Bires drove for Braun four times last year, including a fifth-place finish at Iowa.
Forty-five cars are on the entry list for Richmond, meaning two cars will go home. Ten of those cars are for Sprint Cup drivers, including Matt Kenseth in Roush Fenway Racing's No. 16 Ford for Colin Braun.
