Kaulig Racing anticipates running limited NASCAR Cup Series schedule in 2021

LEXINGTON, N.C. (January 7, 2021) – Kaulig Racing has announced it is anticipating a limited NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) schedule for the upcoming 2021 season.

While it is no secret the team intends to expand to a full-time NCS team in its future, Kaulig Racing plans to get its feet wet with select races in 2021, including road course and superspeedway events, in addition to the 63rd annual Daytona 500.

“Kaulig Racing is always building toward the future and I believe this is the next step in that process,” said team owner, Matt Kaulig. “We have the ultimate goal of becoming a powerhouse team in the Cup Series, and we are excited to continue our team’s growth.”

Following a stellar 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) season, including a Championship 4 race appearance and the team’s fifth consecutive playoff berth, Kaulig Racing has its sights set on the next level.

“From where we started in a go-kart shop to a now championship-contending team, I have seen the growth of Kaulig Racing first-hand over the last five years,” said team president, Chris Rice. “It has been a privilege to be able to have Matt Kaulig’s trust in establishing ourselves as a competitive team in one of NASCAR’s top series, and I am confident we are ready to take that next step as an organization.”
