Daytona International Speedway Post-Race Report

Justin Haley Wins WaWa250 for Second Year in-a-row


Justin Haley, No.11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 9th

Stage One Finish: 1st

Stage Two Finish: 3rd

Finish: 1st

“It’s so special to win at Daytona. I won twice here last year, and both times I didn’t get to see any fans to celebrate. It hasn’t been an easy season for our No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection team, and we’ve had a lot of bad luck. I was trying to formulate a plan in my head, but I knew we still had to work as a team until the end. I think we got the teammate thing down. Hats off to Kaulig Racing – we were all solid this weekend.”

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Hyperice Chevrolet

Start: 1st

Stage One Finish: 2nd

Stage Two Finish: 2nd

Finish: 2nd

“It was a really solid day for Kaulig Racing, and we took over as the regular-season points leader. We still have a lot of work to do this season, but I’m really proud of Justin (Haley) for winning the race. All three of our cars were there at the end coming to the checkered, which is exactly what we want.”

Jeb Burton, No. 10 Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Chevrolet

Start: 13th

Stage One Finish: 3rd

Stage Two Finish: 1st

Finish: 4th

“We had a really great day in our No. 10 Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Chevy. We won the second stage, which was huge for us for points. I’m really proud of my teammates for finishing first and second. All three of us led laps all day. We proved just how hard Kaulig Racing is to beat at these superspeedway races.”

Coke Zero Sugar 400

Kaz Grala, No. 16 Goettl Air Conditioning Chevrolet

Start: 38th

Stage One Finish: 32nd

Stage Two Finish: 31st

Finish: 35th

“It was a fun night while it lasted. Our No. 16 Goettl Chevrolet was really fast, and we played our cards right for most of the night. We just about had that wreck at the end missed, and I had no idea the No. 18 car was coming across the track from down below. It was definitely over too soon for us, and It was frustrating to not get the win I know we could have gotten. I’m proud of everyone on the team for rebounding from being a lap down and making sure we were where we needed to be at the end. I think everyone worked really well together.”

– Kaz Grala
