NASCAR: Alex Kennedy latest driver to take wheel of No. 33


Alex Kennedy, the 22-year-old from Aztec, New Mexico, will return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for a few races this year in Joe Falk’s No. 33 Circle Sport Racing Chevrolet, starting this weekend in Pocono.

Kennedy announced the move on his Twitter page on Monday.

Kennedy made three starts in 2013 with the Humphrey Smith team, although he didn’t exactly cover himself in glory with an early crash at Sonoma, retired at Pocono due to a vibration and finished 29th at Watkins Glen.

RCR NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Brian Scott and veteran David Stremme have also been behind the wheel of the No. 33 this season.
