CONCORD, N.C. -- Roush Fenway Racing has signed Brian Ickler to run in next week's Nationwide race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Ickler will drive the No. 16 Ford usually driven by Colin Braun for the race. Ickler will also participate in testing at Daytona International Speedway this week for Roush Fenway.

The 24-year-old has two top-five finishes in two NASCAR Truck Series starts this year.

Team owner Jack Roush said Braun will get back in the No. 16 and compete in 14 more races through the end of the season.
