Matt Kaulig’s race team–Kaulig Racing–announced Wednesday that Kaz Grala will be its driver for the 63rd running of the Daytona 500 on Feb. 14.
Earlier the team announced a limited Nascar Cup Series schedule but has picked Grala to drive the No. 16 Camaro ZL1 1LE for Kaulig Racing’s second-ever NCS race.
“We’re super excited to have Kaz join our team in 2021, and we can’t wait to get started with him at Daytona,” said Chris Rice, President of Kaulig Racing. “He has had some great success in different series and layouts at Daytona, so we think he will be a great addition to our team beginning with the Daytona 500.”
“I’ve grown up dreaming of reaching the NASCAR Cup Series,” Grala said, “so it will be really special to get more chances to race against my heroes, with Kaulig Racing being the perfect team to take that next step with.”
