It has been a great start to the 2018 season for Ryan Truex and Kaulig Racing. The duo, which came together in the offseason after the team parted ways with longtime driver Blake Koch, sits fourth in the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship standings after Atlanta Motor Speedway.

The 25-year-old driver guided his No. 11 Chevrolet Camaro to two Top-10 finishes (seventh at Daytona, ninth at Atlanta) to start the season, which marks the first time that Kaulig Racing has ever finished inside the Top-10 in two consecutive races. Truex isn’t satisfied and wants to make more history for the team this week in the Boyd Gaming 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
