Justin Haley will race full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2019 with Kaulig Racing. The 19-year-old Winamac, Indiana native will drive the No. 11 Chevy Camaro fielded by the Welcome, North Carolina-based team, which has a technical alliance with Richard Childress Racing. The car was driven this season by Ryan Truex.
“I am really looking forward to 2019,” said team owner Matt Kaulig. “Justin [Haley] is coming off of the best season of his young career and I can’t wait to see what he can do in the No. 11 car.”
Haley has been a full-time racer in the Truck Series the past two seasons with GMS Racing, scoring three wins this year. He also made his Xfinity Series debut with GMS this year, making three starts, and initially appeared to have won the July Xfinity race at Daytona by passing Kyle Larson and Elliott Sadler before NASCAR determined that his winning move had been illegal, Haley having gone below the double yellow line to pass both of the leaders. Larson was therefore declared the winner.
Kaulig Racing said details regarding personnel and sponsorship for Haley’s Xfinity Series program will be announced at a later date.
