Haley Secures First NASCAR Xfinity Series Win at Talladega

LeafFilter Gutter Protection™ Scores First Win in 147 Starts as Primary Sponsor

TALLADEGA, Ala. (June 21, 2020) – Justin Haley secured his first win in the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) last night at Talladega Superspeedway in the Unhinged 300, earning Kaulig Racing its second win of the 2020 season.

Haley, who is in his sophomore year in the NXS, as well as with Kaulig Racing, has come close to securing his first win, recording a runner-up finish and eight top-five finishes. He finally earned his first victory in his 47th start, making him just one of 32 drivers, and the second youngest, to win in all three of NASCAR’s top-tier series.

“I can’t thank Matt Kaulig and LeafFilter Gutter Protection enough for this moment that I’ve been waiting so long for,” said Haley. “Kaulig Racing has been building such fast cars all year, and my LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevy last night was no different. I’m so happy to finally get this car to victory lane for Matt (Kaulig) and everyone at LeafFilter.”

LeafFilter Gutter Protection™, which has been the primary sponsor on Haley’s No. 11 Chevrolet for the second year in a row, first got its taste of NASCAR sponsorship in 2014 in the NASCAR Cup Series (NCS). They went on to sign on for 24 NXS races in 2015 before going full time in 2016 with Kaulig Racing. The Hudson, Ohio-based company, started by Matt Kaulig, has made 147 starts as a primary sponsor, making them one of the longest-running sponsors in the NXS.

Haley’s celebration was followed by a post-race embrace with his teammates, Ross Chastain, who finished second and secured the Dash 4 Cash prize, and AJ Allmendinger, who finished 7th, capping off the 21-year-old’s victory.
