Ross Chastain has an official home for the 2020 season. The 26-year old will pilot the No. 10 Chevrolet Camaro for Kaulig Racing.
The team made the announcement on Tuesday by way of a press release.
Chastain will have sponsorship from Nutrien Ag Solutions for 23 races next season.
The sponsorship pairs two things that mean a lot to Chastain.
“Two of the most important things in my life are agriculture and racing,” Chastain commented. “Nutrien Ag Solutions is the best sponsor I could have ever asked for as it pertains to my family’s long history of farming. Matt (Kaulig), Chris (Rice) and all of Kaulig Racing gave me the opportunity to race this year when I really wasn’t sure I would ever get another winning opportunity in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. And, we won. Now, next year, we get to try to win more races and also compete for the championship.”
Team owner Matt Kaulig is excited about next season with Chastain in his equipment.
“Ross Chastain has it all – he’s competitive, he’s marketable, he’s all-around a great, blue-collar guy,” Kaulig said in the release. “As a team, we couldn’t be more honored to land a driver like Ross. In just four races already this season, he’s not only helped advance our program, but he brought home this team’s very first win. Having him at Kaulig Racing next season, driving full-time, is a great gain for our organization.”
Chastain has two-career wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, the latest came at Daytona in July while driving a part-time schedule for Kaulig.
Chastain is currently battling for the NASCAR Gandee Outdoors Truck Series championship. The Florida native has three wins in that series this season.
