Kaulig & Grala Team For Daytona 500

LEXINGTON, N.C. — Kaz Grala will attempt to qualify for the 63rd Annual Daytona 500 with Kaulig Racing. It would be the team’s second NASCAR Cup Series race. The team does not have a charter and is not guaranteed a starting spot.

The team recently announced it would attempt a limited NCS schedule, which will include the Daytona 500, as well as select road course and superspeedway events. Grala, the youngest winner at Daytona Int’l Speedway (NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, 2017), is set to run several of those events for Kaulig Racing.

“This is a huge opportunity for me both personally and professionally,” said Grala. “I’ve grown up dreaming of reaching the NASCAR Cup Series, so it will be really special to get more chances to race against my heroes, with Kaulig Racing being the perfect team to take that next step with. I can’t thank Matt Kaulig and Chris Rice enough for trusting me in their Cup program, as well as RCR for helping shape my career the past couple seasons. I have already worked with many of the Kaulig team members before, so hopefully that will help us hit the ground running next month. Bring on the DAYTONA 500!”

Grala made one NCS attempt in 2020 at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course, where he finished seventh — the best finish during a NCS debut since 1998. Grala is only one of two drivers to record a top-10 finish in all three of NASCAR’s National Series in 2020.

In 32 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) starts from 2018-2020, Grala recorded nine top-10 and four top-five finishes. He scored a top-five finish in his NXS debut at Daytona Int’l Speedway, and has finished in the top five in two out of his three superspeedway events in the series.

“We’re super excited to have Kaz join our team in 2021, and we can’t wait to get started with him at Daytona,” said Chris Rice, President of Kaulig Racing. “He has had some great success in different series and layouts at Daytona, so we think he will be a great addition to our team beginning with the Daytona 500.”
