Draft Top 250 Post-Race Report

Justin Haley Advances to the Championship Four Round in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs

Justin Haley, No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 3rd

Stage 1 Finish: 5th

Stage 2 Finish: 3rd

Finish: 12th

“What an awesome day at Martinsville – maybe not so much our finish, but our spot in the championship points! We made it to the final four. It’s the first time Kaulig Racing has ever been to the final four. It’s super special to me and also the No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection team. My motor started going away on us for a good part of the race, but our ECR engine held together, and we were able to walk away with enough points to be in the final four.

I am so thankful for this opportunity and everything Matt Kaulig, Chris rice, Jeff Beck and everyone at Kaulig Racing and LeafFilter have done for me. No matter what happens next week, it’s been a career season for Kaulig Racing and myself.”

Ross Chastain, No. 10 Nutrien Ag Solutions Chevrolet

Start: 4th

Stage 1 Finish: 4th

Stage 2 Finish: 1st

Finish: 5th

“I’m proud of the fight from everyone on this No. 10 Nutrien Ag Solutions team and Kaulig Racing here at Martinsville. I put us in a hole coming here at the last two races, and that showed through coming up just short of moving on to the final round. We will go to Phoenix and go for a win.”

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Nutrien Ag Solutions Digital Hub Chevrolet

Start: 36th

Stage 1 Finish: 6th

Stage 2 Finish: 8th

Finish: 26th

“Great effort by the whole Kaulig Racing organization. We had a really fast No. 16 Nutrien Ag Solutions Digital Hub Chevy. The 20 was really quick, so I knew I had to get into the lead. We touched off of turn four and cut my left rear tire. It’s very unfortunate, but I am so happy with how fast our car was. It was a great year, and I am so pumped we could get Justin in to the final four.”

– AJ Allmendinger
