Ag-Pro 300 and Geico 500 Post-Race Report

Jeb Burton Wins First-Career NASCAR Xfinity Series Race

Ag-Pro 300

Jeb Burton, No. 10 LS Tractor Chevrolet

Start: 9th

Stage 1 Finish: 2nd

Stage 2 Finish: 17th

Finish: 1st

“These guys at Kaulig Racing deserve to win. The 10 team didn’t win all year last year, so to get them to victory lane is special. I wouldn’t be here without Nutrien Ag Solutions, as well as all my other partners – Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, Alsco, State Water Heaters, Rocky Boots. I’m so thankful to Matt Kaulig, Chris Rice and everyone at Kaulig Racing. It’s unbelievable.”

AJ Allmendinger No. 16 Hyperice Chevrolet

Start: 11th

Stage 1 Finish: 6th

Stage 2 Finish: 15th

Finish: 3rd

“It’s a really solid day anytime you can come out of Talladega with a top five and a clean racecar. More importantly to be able to help push Jeb to the win and get another superspeedway win for Kaulig Racing is really special. I’m so proud and happy for Jeb and his family. I can’t thank everyone at Kaulig Racing enough for giving us fast racecars. We stepped our program up again, so the cars had a lot of speed in them. I’m happy to have qualified for the Dash 4 Cash and have a shot to win it at Darlington.”

Justin Haley, No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 5th

Stage 1 Finish: 1st

Stage 2 Finish: 14th

Finish: 8th

“Our No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet was a rocketship! We ran up front the whole race and were able to line up with our teammates, Jeb Burton and AJ Allmendinger for a majority of the day. I’m disappointed that we didn’t get a better finish, but I’m super excited for my teammate, Jeb and his crew chief, Bruce Schlicker for getting their first win. I’m happy for Matt Kaulig and the entire Kaulig Racing organization for bringing home another one of those awesome trophies and earning our third win in-a-row at Talladega.”

Geico 500

Kaz Grala, No. 16 Hyperice Camaro ZL1 1LE

Start: 38th

Stage 1 Finish: 24th

Stage 2 Finish: 23rd

Finish: 6th

“It was an awesome day here with the Kaulig Racing crew here at Talladega. They won the Xfinity race on Saturday, and we got a sixth-place finish today – both of our career bests in the Cup Series. It was a really big weekend. Matt Swiderski called a great race, and Brett Griffin did an awesome job on the roof at keeping us in the position we wanted to be in to advance and make it to the end. We had a really fast Hyperice Camaro ZL1 1LE today, and I’m excited about being able to run some more races with these guys.”
