Lexington, N.C. – (June 27, 2019) – Next Friday, July 5 will be one for the record books as Kaulig Racing will field three Chevrolets for the first time in history in a single event. The team has added Ross Chastain to its entry list at Daytona International Speedway along with previously announced AJ Allmendinger and full-time driver Justin Haley.
The team will now race the No. 16 with Chastain behind the wheel in addition to its No. 10 (Allmendinger) and No. 11 (Haley) Chevrolets at Daytona.
“Being able to bring a third car to Daytona and have our part-time driver Ross Chastain behind the wheel only increases our chances of getting the win,” team owner Matt Kaulig said. “Not by the addition of a car, but by the additional teammate our two drivers Justin Haley and AJ Allmendinger will have – Daytona is all about teamwork.”
To date, the team has led 57 laps at the World Center of Racing with an average start of 8.1 and best finish of seventh (Feb. 2018). Earlier this year, Haley took the first stage win of the season at Daytona with teammate Chastain winning the second stage.
“The success this team has had at resistor-plate tracks this season hasn’t gone unnoticed,” team president Chris Rice commented. “To have two stage wins and five top-five stage finishes in just two races shows the strength Kaulig Racing has.”
Next Friday, July 5, Kaulig Racing will look to build upon its resistor-plate racing success and field three Chevrolets in a single event for the first time in the organization’s history.
Tune in to NBCSN at 7:30 p.m. ET to watch as the team reaches the milestone.
