  • Allmendinger led two laps at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) last week, his first in the 2022 NCS season
  • He has earned three top-10 finishes at Richmond in the NCS

AJ Allmendinger on Richmond Raceway:

“I’m pumped to run for $100,000 in the Xfinity Dash 4 Cash once again this year. Richmond was a really good racetrack for us last year at Kaulig Racing, and I felt like we had a really good shot to win. I’m looking forward to getting back there and continue the momentum of this past weekend in both the Xfinity Series and in the Cup Series. The Next Gen car has been so fun to race each week, so I’m excited to have another shot at it in our No. 16 Action Industries Camaro ZL1.”

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1

  • Haley’s average finish of 17.7 ranks 16th-best (of 33) of all full-time NCS drivers in 2022.
  • Haley’s one-lap led at Atlanta Motor Speedway was Kaulig Racing’s first of the 2022 season

Justin Haley on Richmond Raceway:

“We’ve been competitive at every race this year, and I see no reason why we can’t go for another solid finish in Richmond. It was always a great track for me in the Xfinity Series with Kaulig Racing. We have always been so strong there and had runner-up finishes several times. I’m looking forward to seeing what our No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection team can accomplish on a short track after our strong performance in LA earlier this year.”
