LEXINGTON, N.C. – Kaulig Racing announced Wednesday that part-time driver A.J. Allmendinger will compete in the No. 10 Chevrolet at Watkins Glen Int’l on Aug. 3.

Allmendinger is a previous winner at Watkins Glen, having earned a victory in 2014 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series for JTG-Daugherty Racing.

“It’s an honor to be able to compete for Kaulig Racing at one of my favorite tracks, Watkins Glen Int’l,” Allmendinger said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to win there in the Cup Series and had a strong run finishing second last season in my only Xfinity start there.

“Matt Kaulig, Chris Rice and all of the guys made Daytona so enjoyable and fun, and I can’t wait to get to The Glen.”

In his lone Xfinity Series start at the New York road course, Allmendinger collected one stage win and led 11 laps en route to a runner-up finish.

So far this season with Kaulig Racing, the veteran driver has led 33 laps and crossed the finish line in third, all in his first start with the team at Daytona Int’l Speedway on July 5.

As previously announced, Allmendinger is also scheduled to join the No. 10 team at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on Aug. 10, Road America on Aug. 24 and at the Charlotte Motor Speedway ROVAL on Sept. 28.

The primary partner for the No. 10 Chevrolet at Watkins Glen will be released at a later date.
