Kaulig Racing Post-Race Report | Kansas Speedway

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Hyperice Chevrolet

Start: 5th

Stage One Finish: 1st

Stage Two Finish: 6th

Finish: 3rd

“Ultimately, we had a really good finish at Kansas. We were probably a sixth-place car for a while there, but we had a solid strategy. We didn’t have a whole lot of speed, but we were able to steal the first stage win. From there, we had to claw to get everything we could. Once the No. 9 and No. 20 cars wrecked, I knew we needed to get everything we could to extend the points gap. All the men and women at Kaulig Racing fought hard to turn an average day into a good one.”

Justin Haley, No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 6th

Stage One Finish: 9th

Stage Two Finish: 10th

Finish: 4th

“We turned a bad day into a good day. We just struggled with forward drive all day, but the guys made a really good adjustment at the end. My crew chief, Alex Yontz and the LeafFilter Gutter Protection team, did a great job. We had a good pit strategy and had a fast No. 11 car that last run. We were finally close to where we needed to be. We will pick it back up at Martinsville next weekend.”

Jeb Burton, No. 10 Dyna-Gro Seed Chevrolet

Start: 11th

Stage One Finish: 24th

Stage Two Finish: 17th

Finish: 12th

“It was a tough day overall for this No. 10 team. We struggled most of the day, and I got a little bit of damage trying to avoid a wreck in front of me. We had a good strategy and were able to get back into the top 10, but I got run into at the end, which almost wrecked us. Luckily, we only lost a few spots and salvaged a 12th-place finish.”

– Jeb Burton
