The elder Swindell, 63, was recently released from his ride with Thone Motorsports because team owner Brandon Thone chose to shut the team down in order to focus on his business endeavors.
Swindell is a three-time winner of the Kings Royal at Eldora, capturing the event title in 2012, ’99 and ’92.
The Kings Royal, which will pay a whopping $175,000 to the winner, takes place July 17-20.
