LEXINGTON, N.C. – Kaulig Racing has set its crew chief lineup for the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series season.
Bruce Schlicker, former race engineer for Stewart-Haas Racing, will lead the No. 10 Chevrolet entry that will be driven by Ross Chastain. Schlicker previously worked as a race engineer at Richard Childress Racing from 2012-16, and most recently at Stewart-Haas Racing.
“I’m excited for the opportunity at Kaulig Racing,” said Schlicker. “It’s a great team with great resources and even better drivers. We’ve got some great support from Nutrien Ag Solutions, who will be on the No. 10 car for the majority of the races in 2020. I’m looking forward to running a full season in the Xfinity Series with Ross Chastain, winning races and chasing after the championship.”
Alex Yontz will continue in his role of crew chief for Justin Haley and the No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet. Yontz transitioned from shock specialist to interim crew chief in July of last year.
“I’m excited to be back with Justin Haley this season full time,” said Yontz. “We have a few races under our belts together from the end of last season, and we built a really good relationship. I’m looking forward to winning races with him in 2020.”
Kaulig Racing scored a pair of NASCAR Xfinity Series victories last year with A.J. Allmendinger and Ross Chastain. This year will be the first time the team has fielded two full-time teams in NASCAR Xfinity Series competition.
“We are really excited to have Alex Yontz and Bruce Schlicker as crew chiefs,” said Kaulig Racing President Chris Rice. “As we continue to grow, we are stepping up our game immensely. I have confidence that we have the right people in the right positions, and we will have success this season.”
