“Coming off a top-20 finish in our last race together in Kansas, I’m excited to race in my first-ever Coca-Cola 600 with Kaulig Racing. We’ve made progress in each race together, so hopefully we will keep that momentum going into one of the biggest events of our sport. It’s an honor to race on Memorial Day weekend and honor the many men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice protecting our country.”

– Noah Gragson on Charlotte Motor Speedway

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1

  • Justin Haley has made one start at Charlotte Motor Speedway in the NCS
  • He has earned six top 15s, one top 10 and one top-five finish in 2022
  • Haley’s third-place finish at Darlington was Kaulig Racing’ first top-five not at a superspeedway or road course

“The Coca-Cola 600 is a big home race for us at Charlotte Motor Speedway. I feel like our mile-and-a-half program has been pretty good so far this year. We have had some success on those types of tracks, and we had a super fast car at Texas last weekend. I’m looking forward to keeping the momentum going on this No. 31 LeafFilter team while we remember those who died protecting our country on Memorial Day weekend.”

  • Landon Cassill has an average finish of 22.8 at Charlotte Motor Speedway across eight starts
  • Cassill has led four laps at Charlotte

“Charlotte is a cool track. I love being close to home and race in front of friends and family. The track is super temperature-sensitive, so will see lots of different challenges during both practice and the race. It can definitely be a survival race.”

– Landon Cassill on Charlotte Motor Speedway

“It’s always special racing at home, having your family and friends there at the track, and in the grandstands pulling for you. Take that, and pair it with all of our Kaulig Racing family members that have an opportunity to come cheer us on, that adds just a little extra to the tank to want to perform that much better. Charlotte itself is one of the more demanding, temperature-sensitive race tracks we go to, and all of us are up for the challenge to put on a good show for the hometown crowd”

– Daniel Hemric on Charlotte Motor Speedway

Racing at Charlotte is always fun for the teams and all the families that can come out. With it being a home race, it allows everybody to rest just a little bit more than they normally could on a given weekend. I felt like we’d learned some stuff last week at Texas that we can take into Charlotte to hopefully be a little bit better. Although we didn’t get the finish we wanted at Texas last week, we made small gains, and I think there are some ideas we’re taking into Charlotte that makes me a little bit more pumped up than I have been the past few races.”

– AJ Allmendinger on Charlotte Motor Speedway
