Ross Chastain Quote

“Talladega! Back to our bread and butter here at Kaulig Racing. We built this empire on superspeedways and road courses last year, and now we are expanding that to ovals. We’ve got AJ Allmendinger on an oval. If that doesn’t tell you how good these cars are, I don’t know what else does. We had a really strong car there (at Talladega) last year. It had a gear cooler failure, so we ran out of rear-end grease and burnt up the rear gear. We are going back, and depending on the draw, we will see how aggressive we are at the beginning. I tend to not be very aggressive at these places.

We want to run for the Dash 4 Cash, so we want to be there at the end of the race. We are running for points, which is a lot different scenario than I had last year. I can’t wait to get out there in our No. 10 Nutrien Ag Solutions Chevy familiar paint scheme – just with a little, red banner on top.”
