Brad Keselowski will skip another NASCAR Nationwide Series race as he continues to recuperate from ankle and back injuries suffered in a crash at Road Atlanta earlier this month.

Penske Racing said Parker Kligerman will drive Penske's No. 22 Dodge in this weekend's Food City 250 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Keselowski has missed the last three Nationwide Series race, though he was not scheduled to race at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal last weekend.

"Brad Keselowski is still healing from an ankle fracture and strained back suffered in his testing accident at Road Atlanta earlier this month," Penske Racing president Tim Cindric said. "Brad's condition will continue to be monitored on a race-by-race basis."

Curiously, Keselowski has finished first, second and third in the three Sprint Cup races he's raced in since the crash.
