LEXINGTON, N.C. – Kaulig Racing officials have announce two of the team’s paint schemes for the Throwback Weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway.
Jeb Burton’s No. 10 Nutrien Ag Solutions Chevrolet will honor his father, Ward Burton, and his first NASCAR Cup Series win. Ward Burton earned his first win at Rockingham (N.C.) Speedway in 1995 during the AC Delco 400.
“It’s pretty cool to be able to honor my dad’s 1995 MBNA scheme from his first, Cup Series win at Rockingham for our Darlington throwback scheme,” said Jeb Burton. “Dad and my uncle (Jeff Burton) have had a lot of success at Darlington, so it’s a special track for our family. I’ve only raced there once in the Cup Series about six years ago, so I am excited to get back there. It’s a great looking car, and I appreciate Nutrien Ag Solutions for allowing it to happen. Hopefully it will be a good weekend for our team.”
Justin Haley will pilot the No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet that will garner a special scheme paying tribute to LeafFilter’s first NASCAR Cup Series race as a primary partner. The award-winning company started by Matt Kaulig made its Cup Series debut as a sponsor of Go Fas Racing in 2014 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“I’m pumped to be able to race this scheme at Darlington this year,” said Kaulig. “I started LeafFilter from the basement of my house, and then was able to be the primary partner of a NASCAR Cup Series car in 2014. Now, 7 years later, LeafFilter has won three races with Justin Haley and as a company has grown beyond my wildest dreams across the United States and Canada, so it’s amazing to see how far we have come in a few short years. I know Justin (Haley) will make us proud.”
The Steakhouse Elite 200 at Darlington Raceway will take place on Saturday, May 8.
