Kaulig Racing will field “at least one car” full-time in the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series as per the team owner Matt Kaulig.
The announcement was made at SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Wednesday. Kaling currently owns three full-time Xfinity Series teams for drivers AJ Allmendinger, Jeb Burton and Justin Haley.
The team has already made four Cup Series starts and their best finish came recently at Talladega Superspeedway with Kaz Grala finishing sixth in the race.
“We’re going full-time Cup racing next year,” said Kaulig. “We’ll have one car. We’ll have at least one car, let’s put it that way. So that’s definitely a done deal. We’re super-excited about that. That’s the reason we’re running … we’ll run 10 or 11 Cup races this year, and man, we’re already three in.”
As for the preparation of a full-time position in the Cup Series, the team has already purchased another race shop in Welcome, North Carolina.
Kaulig also mentioned that Allmendinger and Grala will serve as their drivers for their remaining Cup Series commitments this season.
The decision to go full-time coincides with the introduction of the Next Gen car in the Cup Series next season.
