Matt Kaulig, Owner of Kaulig Racing and Founder & Board Member at Leaf Home, has always been passionate and involved in sports. Born in Columbus, Ohio, and raised in Cincinnati, Matt moved to the Chicago area at age 14, where he attended high school. After high school, Matt ventured to Northeast Ohio to attend the University of Akron, where he was a standout quarterback for the Zips. Till this day, Matt remains heavily involved in the Akron Zips community as he provides aid for the school’s football programs and lends a helping-hand in sponsoring events.

Falling in love with the area while in college, Kaulig decided to establish roots in Northeast Ohio, where he started LeafFilter Gutter Protection in 2005 from the basement of his home.

Kaulig brings the same passion and drive to his NASCAR team. As an industry leader, and a recognized, successful entrepreneur, Kaulig has a proven record of developing new ventures that thrive. In 2016, he founded Kaulig Racing and established the headquarters in Welcome, North Carolina. Setting the team up for success early on, Kaulig Racing joined forces with Richard Childress Racing to create a technical alliance, including the use of ECR engines.

Since then, Kaulig has managed to establish his race team as a winning multi-car organization with two NASCAR Xfinity Series Regular Season Championships, twenty wins, 9 poles, 108 top-5, and 240 top-10 finishes, that will contend for Championships.

Several notable recent accomplishments include being inducted into the Cleveland Business Hall of Fame in 2022, joining the Cleveland Guardians Ownership in 2022, being named the Presenting Sponsor for the Kaulig Companies Championship at Firestone Country Club beginning in 2023 through 2026, named “Entrepreneur of the Year” by Ernst and Young; opening over 150 LeafFilter® offices; partnering with The NASCAR Foundation to deliver over 8000 Speedy Bears to children in over 50 hospitals coast-to-coast since its inception, being named an Akron Children’s Hospital Champions for Children honoree, 2020 Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award Finalist, an annual award created to recognize the philanthropic efforts of individuals within the NASCAR industry. Hosting the 2022, 2021, 2020 & 2019 Cleveland Guardians Charities Giveathon, and opening the first of its kind video production and editing studio, The Kaulig Media Lab, located in the “I Promise School.” The I Promise School was recently founded by the LeBron James Family Foundation and Akron Public Schools. To date, Matt’s charitable giving programs have provided philanthropic support to more than two hundred 501(c)3 organizations.
