April 23, 2022

Geico 500
Talladega Superspeedway
NASCAR Cup Series (NCS)
Sunday April 24 at 3 p.m. ET on FOX
  • Kaulig Racing has one top-10 finish at Talladega in the NCS, coming in the team’s first start at the track in 2021 (Grala, sixth)

Daniel Hemric, No. 16 Majestic Steel Camaro ZL1

  • Daniel Hemric has an average finish of 13.0 at Talladega, his second-best of tracks he has multiple starts at
  • He has one top-15 finish and one top-10 finish across three total starts in the 2022 NCS season

“I’m looking forward to our second speedway race together as a group and building on the solid foundation Kaulig Racing has established over the years at superspeedways. The engine package has changed some over the last year or so at these type of tracks, but the speed and teamwork within this organization hasn’t, and we are collectively excited about the opportunity in front of us as we head to Talladega. This group has been putting the work in, communicating, and doing the things you have to do to build for our future together. We are ready.”

– Daniel Hemric on Talladega Speedway

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1

  • Justin Haley has an average finish of 23.3 at Talladega, his third-best of tracks he has multiple starts at
  • In 2021, Haley led four laps at Talladega in his lone start for Kaulig Racing there
  • He has three top-15 finishes in the 2022 NCS season

“Talladega is one of my best tracks, so I feel optimistic going into the weekend. I feel like we had good speedway speed at Daytona earlier this year, but we just didn’t get the finish we wanted after the issues we had. Going into the second speedway race of the year, we’re going to race hard all day to try and make up stage points. Hopefully we get good points finish out of it and stay out of the big one.”

– Justin Haley on Talladega Superspeedway

  • Kaulig Racing has led 179 laps in the 2022 NXS season so far
  • Allmendinger: 131 laps

Landon Cassill, No. 10 Voyager Chevrolet

  • Landon Cassill has an average finish of 17.0 across six starts and has two top-10 finishes at Talladega
  • He has led one lap at Talladega
  • Cassill earned his best finish in the NXS at Martinsville Speedway (second), qualifying him for this week’s Dash 4 Cash prize for the first time in his career, alongside teammate, AJ Allmendinger

“I’m excited about Talladega, especially with the speed all of our Kaulig Racing cars have had at superspeedways so far, including Atlanta. This is also the first opportunity in my career to race for the Dash 4 Cash, which is pretty exciting, especially at a place like Talladega, where we definitely know we have a shot to win. I’m hoping we can keep our No. 10 Voyager Chevy up front with our Kaulig Racing teammates and be there at the end.”

Daniel Hemric, No. 11 Cirkul Chevrolet

  • Daniel Hemric has an average finish of 16.4 across five starts and has two top-five finishes at Talladega

“At Kaulig Racing, we know we have fast cars when we show up to superspeedways. Chevrolet, as a whole, always brings fast racecars. When it comes to outright speed at places like Talladega, I like Kaulig Racing’s chances. I feel like over the four years that I have been with Kaulig Racing, we’ve done a great job as a team dictating these types of races, but Talladega is definitely more challenging, because there is so much you can’t dictate there.”

– AJ Allmendinger on Talladega Superspeedway
