Noah Gragson, No. 16 Chevliners.com Camaro ZL1

  • This will mark Gragson’s second start in the NCS

Noah Gragson on Atlanta Motor Speedway:

“I’m looking forward to my first race with Kaulig Racing this weekend and the opportunity I have with them to learn this new car. I don’t really have too many expectations going into this weekend, as it will be a learning experience for everyone on the newly repaved surface. I think there will be challenges, but I’m staying open minded. I’m excited to keep building on what Kaulig Racing has already started.”

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1
  • Haley has two starts at Atlanta in the NCS
  • His average finish is 29.5

Justin Haley on Atlanta Motor Speedway:

“I’m excited to get to Atlanta, and I’m curious to see how the NextGen car handles there. Obviously, the big question mark is the repave and how our cars will handle there. We will have a long practice to get our No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1 dialed in, so hopefully we are able to figure out what we need to continue being competitive like we have been so far this season.”

Landon Cassill on Atlanta Motor Speedway:

“I am looking forward to racing in Atlanta this weekend with this new repave of the track. There are a lot of questions and unknowns, so it will be interesting to see how everyone unloads and adjusts to the changes. We’ve shown a ton of speed these last few weeks at Kaulig Racing, so I’m excited to hopefully keep building on the good runs we’ve had in our No. 10 Voyager Chevy.”

Daniel Hemric, No. 11 AG1 Chevrolet

  • Hemric has an average finish of 12.6 at Atlanta (five starts)
  • He has led 45 laps at Atlanta, all 45 came during the second race at the track in 2021

Daniel Hemric on Atlanta Motor Speedway:

“It’s a new menu for all of us with this repave and new configuration at Atlanta. We are all a bit antsy to see what the package that NASCAR is bringing will be like, as well as the tire that Goodyear is bringing. It will be interesting to see how all the teams approach the track this week and the type of racing we will have. I like what we are bringing at Kaulig Racing, so hopefully this will be another solid week for us.”

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Action Industries Chevrolet

  • Allmendinger has an average finish of 6.3 at Atlanta Motor Speedway (three starts)
  • He has led 39 laps, 37 of which came during his victory in 2020

AJ Allmendinger on Atlanta Motor Speedway:

“There are a lot of unknowns this week as far as what this track will race like. We know if it races more like a super speedway, our cars are really fast at those tracks. Overall, I think it’s one of those things where we just don’t know what to expect. We will have to wait to get a feel for it during practice. I think track position will be critical, so we have to stay up front all day. I’m definitely going into it with an open mind.”
