Jordan Taylor Joins Kaulig For Portland Xfinity Run

LEXINGTON, N.C. — With the NASCAR Xfinity Series heading to Portland International Raceway in June, Kaulig Racing has tapped sports car star Jordan Taylor to pilot their No. 10 Chevrolet Camaro, the team announced Wednesday. 

It’ll be the 32-year-old’s first Xfinity Series race after he made his first NASCAR Cup Series start earlier this year at Texas’ Circuit of the Americas while filling in for an injured Chase Elliott. Taylor qualified fourth and finished 24th in the event.  

Currently, Taylor is a full-time Corvette factory driver in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. 

“I am really pumped to make my first Xfinity series start with Kaulig Racing, a team that has shown it can dominate at road courses,” said Taylor. “I’ve been fortunate in my racing career to compete at so many different tracks, and I’m looking forward to checking Portland off my list.”

Taylor has earned seven wins in the NASCAR Grand-Am Sports Car Series and 24 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship wins, and has competed in numerous prestigious events, such as 24 Hours of Le Mans and American Le Mans Series races. 

“Matt Kaulig and I are super excited to have Jordan [Taylor] in the No. 10 car for Portland”, said team president, Chris Rice. “Adding another driver with this much road-course expertise will be a lot of fun. Jordan impressed a lot of people in his first NASCAR start at COTA, and I can’t wait to see what he will do in his first Xfinity Series start.”
