Q: What percent of overall success in NASCAR has to do with the driver, what percent is the car and what percent is luck?
Our series of NASCAR driver interviews continues this week with Parker Kligerman, who drives for Kyle Busch Motorsports in the Nationwide Series but will make his Sprint Cup Series debut with Swan Racing at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday.
A: I never did. I'm sure my mom kept some stuff from my first few years of racing and go karting somewhere in our house. But I was a little bit ignorant and brash when I first got (to stock cars) and my thinking was along the lines of, "If I'm thinking about keeping that stuff then I'm not focused on the future and succeeding." So I never really kept anything.
I give them away to the people who made it happen. Whether it's a sponsor or the owner or someone in my family that might want it.
that and my own style which was a lot like Kurt's at the drop of a hat.
Questions with Parker Kligerman
A: I've had a lot of experience working with other drivers obviously being at Penske Racing for four years, I saw how Kurt (Busch) drove and I also got to see New Era Lakers Snapback how Brad (Keselowski) drove. I always kind of prided myself on being able to change my style.
There's only one trophy I ever won that I'd like to get back and I'll try to get it back at some point and that was the Tim Richmond Memorial 200 trophy from ARCA that I won in Ohio (in 2009). It was pretty cool to win something with his name on it.

I've tried continuing to evolve that to where you find yourself doing whatever it takes to be successful that weekend and have a different set of weapons in your arsenal, so to speak.
But I guess over the last year or two since I left Penske and was at a couple different teams, I've started to collect a couple things. Especially the Penske stuff it's not every day you realize you were 18 years old and working for Roger Penske. So that was a cool thing. It means a lot to be able to keep a suit or helmet from different teams and have those memories down the road. You never know: One day you might want to create a trophy room or something like that.
What did you do with all the trophies you didn't keep?

The one thing is I've always made sure to keep checkered flags. I don't keep trophies I've never been a big fan of trophies. But I love checkered flags. No matter if you won a go kart race or the Daytona 500, I think they symbolize the end goal. You should work hard for each one. I have all of those in my house.
