May 1, 2020
Welcome to another week of the Kaulig Racing Round Table. This week, Matt Kaulig and the gang discuss the newly released schedule changes within the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS).
In Episode three of the Kaulig Racing Round table, Matt Kaulig asks the drivers their thoughts on racing multiple times per week, as NASCAR has released schedule changes for the month of May. AJ Allmendinger, who is slated to run eight races for Kaulig Racing in 2020, thinks it will be a fun experience. For years, NASCAR has discussed the possibility of mid-week races, and now the time has come for this to happen.
Viewership is a question that comes to everyones’ minds when we discuss mid-week events. Although the Eldora Truck race is a mid-week race every year, will the NXS have the same result?
Another exciting schedule change for the NXS is the IndyCar double header on the Fourth of July that was announced a few weeks ago. The NXS and IndyCar Series have never had the opportunity to host an event together, and this weekend is sure to be one for the History books.
Although the Kaulig Racing stable believes multiple races per week will be fun, the subject of recovery time is on their minds. Justin Haley, who is 21, does not take his usual recovery time of multiple days per week for granted. This will truly test some of the NXS stars, as well as the lack of simulator time they receive. Haley says he, and others, will have to adapt to this change in order to get back on track with the 2020 NASCAR season.
