NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Justin Haley will make a dip back into the Cup Series this coming weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.
Haley will hop back into the Spire Motorsports No.77 Camaro with backing from Parts Plus.
“I’m beyond excited to get back behind the wheel of the Spire Motorsports 77 this weekend at Talladega,” Haley said. “Peter (crew chief Peter Sospenzo) and the whole team at Spire have been behind me since day one, and I’m so fortunate to get the call to come back and drive for them. Hopefully we can pick up where we left off last summer in Daytona.”
The 21-year-old has been making a name for himself on the superspeedway circuits in both the Cup Series and the Xfinity Series.
“Justin Haley is one of the savviest superspeedway racers in the sport and his pedigree at Talladega and Daytona speaks for itself,” said Spire Motorsports co-owner T.J. Puchyr. “Justin helped put Spire Motorsports on the map when he and Peter Sospenzo won at NASCAR’s highest level a little over a year ago at Daytona. We’re thrilled to have him behind the wheel of the Parts Plus Chevrolet this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. He has an incredibly bright future and we’re proud to be part of it.”
In three superspeedway starts in the Xfinity Series this season, Haley has finished no worse than sixth back at Daytona International Speedway in February. His other two starts at Talladega snd Daytona both finished with him in victory lane.
Garage rumors suggest that one of the two charters that Spire holds for 2021 could be a landing spot for Haley to move to the Cup Series full-time. Spire Sports and Entertainment also serves Haley as representation.
The Yellawood 500 at Talladega will air this Sunday at 1:30 PM EST on NBC and the NBC Sports App.
