Dale Earnhardt Jr. said Friday that he probably will put Brad Keselowski in his No. 88 Chevrolet Busch car for three races, starting next weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.

Keselowski would race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill., on July 14, Gateway International at Madison, Ill., on July 21 and O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis on July 28.

Keselowski, 23, has competed in 13 Busch races this season. His best finish was 24th at Dover.

Earnhardt said he is looking to put a road-racing specialist in the JR Motorsports entry for the inaugural road course event at Montreal on Aug. 4.

JR Motorsports released Shane Huffman from his duties as the driver of the No. 88 Chevy earlier this week.
