  • Hemric has made one Daytona 500 start in 2019, where he led one lap

Daniel Hemric on Daytona:

“I’ve been fortunate to have experience at Daytona over the last handful of years in many different series, but this year, I’m going into it with my new home, Kaulig Racing. We’ve been spending time preparing as a team during the offseason and building on relationships that attribute to the culture at this team. This is our first opportunity to officially do that, and given the history of Kaulig Racing’s success, especially at super speedways, makes it even more exciting. I look forward to the chance to being part of this Kaulig Racing family, working with my teammates on the Xfinity side, as well as the cup side, and continue building towards the vision that Matt Kaulig, Chris rice and everyone at Kaulig Racing has built prior to me being here.”

 

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1

  • Haley has made one Daytona 500 start in 2020 with Kaulig Racing
  • He has won at Daytona (2018) across three total starts and has an average finish of 6.667 at Daytona in the NCS

Justin Haley on Daytona:

“This is an exciting weekend for myself and Kaulig Racing. I was fortunate enough to run both my first and Kaulig Racing’s first Daytona 500 together a couple years ago. To be entering our second Daytona 500 together, but this time to kick off our first, full Cup Series season together, is truly special. Kaulig Racing has been a huge part of my growth as a driver, and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do together this year starting at the biggest race in motorsports.”

Landon Cassill on Daytona:

“I’m excited for Daytona, because I know I’ll be racing from a perspective that I haven’t had in a long time there. The speed of my car, the way I’ll be working with my Kaulig Racing teammates, and the way I’ll work the draft will be much different than in year’s past for me. As much as experience has gotten me this far, I’m very open minded, because I know I’ll be seeing a lot of new things. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do as a team this weekend”

AJ Allmendinger on Daytona:

“I’m looking forward to going back to Daytona and starting my second, full season with Kaulig Racing. Our last finish at Daytona was almost perfectly executed at the finish line, and my teammates at Kaulig Racing always do a fantastic job of working together throughout the entire race. Daytona is a special place for Matt Kaulig — it’s where Kaulig Racing got it’s first win, so hopefully we can make him proud this weekend.”
