Justin Haley Returning to Kaulig Racing in Xfinity in 2021

Justin Haley will return to Kaulig Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2021, the team announced Monday, Oct. 19.

Haley has driven for the team full time since 2019. The 21-year-old currently sits in fifth in the playoffs, two points below the cut line.

In 2020, Haley has collected three wins, 10 top fives and 19 top 10s, all career highs. He also has led a career-high number of laps with 110.

“I’d first like to thank LeafFilter Gutter Protection, Matt Kaulig, Chris Rice and everyone at Kaulig Racing for an amazing partnership the past two years,” Haley said in a team release. “We’ve grown as a team, an organization, and most importantly, as a family. I feel super blessed to have gotten the call from Kaulig Racing after my second win at Talladega [Superspeedway] that they wanted me back in 2021. They have believed in me since day one, and have stuck with me through the highs and lows. I’m extremely humbled to keep this strong partnership going into 2021 and continue trophy hunting!”


Sponsors for Haley’s No. 11 team will be announced at a later date.

The announcement did not specify if Haley will run any NASCAR Cup Series races for the team in 2021; Haley and Kaulig ran the 2020 Daytona 500 in the No. 16.
