Daytona International Speedway | Post-Race Report

Daytona 500

Daniel Hemric, No. 16 Heritage Pool Supply Group, Inc. Chevrolet

Start: 33rd

Stage 1 Finish: 30th

Stage 2 Finish: 22nd

Finish: 12th

“It was a very eventful day. We had a plan that we knew we had to execute if we wanted a shot to have a solid day. We just got off to an interesting start. We got behind and had to work really hard to get back on the lead lap, and once we did that, we had a bit of an uphill battle. We had a ton of speed in our Heritage Camaro. Everyone at Kaulig racing does an incredible job at super speedways every year and today in the next gen car was no exception. I’m thankful for the opportunity to run another Daytona 500 and have a shot to bring home a 12th place finish at a superspeedway and a clean race car.”

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 25th

Stage 1 Finish: 33rd

Stage 2 Finish: 30th

Finish: 23rd

“It wasn’t the day we wanted for our No. 31 Kaulig Racing team. We had a really fast LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1, but we had a tire issue that caused a brake issue, which forced us to pit multiple times to try and fix. We still had some speed but just couldn’t get the laps back. Our guys fought really hard all day, and fortunately, we were able to salvage a 23rd-place finish.”

Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. 300

AJ, Allmendinger, No. 16 Nutrien Ag Solutions Chevrolet

Start: 11th

Stage 1 Finish: 2nd

Stage 2 Finish: 4th

Finish: 2nd

“I’ll have to ask my son, Justin Haley, some more questions about how to win at super speedways obviously, because he knows how to get it done. We definitely showed the ECR horsepower that we have in these cars. It’s disappointing to finish second for sure. I really wanted to get Nutrien Ag Solutions into victory lane for their first race back, but I’m proud of everyone at Kaulig Racing. These Chevy Camaros are fast. I think we showed that we put the right team together, just like we’ve shown over the last three or four years here at these race tracks, and we have had a shot to win every time.”

– AJ Allmendinger

Landon Cassill, No. 10 Voyager Digital Chevrolet

Start: 6th

Stage 1 Finish: 13th

Stage 2 Finish: 21st

Finish: 14th

“It was definitely the best car I’ve ever had at these tracks. It was awesome racing in a Kaulig Racing car with my teammates, Daniel and AJ. I felt like it was a lot of getting used to running up front. I can’t wait to watch the race back and learn from my mistakes for next time.”

– Landon Cassill

Daniel Hemric, No. 11 AG1 Chevrolet

Start: 1st

Stage 1 Finish: 1st

Stage 2 Finish: 1st

Finish: 28th

“We had a really great start to the day and got the pole during qualifying. We had such a fast No. 11 AG1 Chevy and our teammates, AJ and Landon were fast as well. We were able to work together for a majority of the race, but I jut got caught up in a wreck with nowhere to go. We had some damage but were still super fast. Unfortunately we just couldn’t get back on the lead lap before the end.”
