Austin Dillon has been officially added to the All-Star roster for Kaulig Racing’s No. 10 entry in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season. According to a tweet from the team on Friday, Dillon will pilot the No. 10 car at Auto Club Speedway.
Dillon has run five NASCAR Xfinity Series events for the team in the No. 10 in the past (between 2018 and 2019) and his best finish with the team was a fourth-place effort at Las Vegas in 2019. Dillon was the 2013 NASCAR Xfinity Series champion and has nine wins in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition.
In a 49-minute exclusive interview, Jeffrey Earnhardt doesn’t dodge any questions. The grandson of the legendary Dale Earnhardt talks about his emotions of his grandfather’s team being shut down several years ago, what happened with his iK9 deal a few years ago, how he is primed for a full-time season with Alpha Prime Racing and a lot more. The interview is available exclusively for paid subscribers of the TC Daily Pit Stop.
Sammy Smith, who will contest the full NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule this season with Joe Gibbs Racing, will make his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series debut in the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway.
Smith will pilot the No. 17 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro for TRICON Garage. Sponsorship for the effort will come from Mobil1.
