“When I first went to Kaulig Racing to compete part-time in 2019 and 2020, I remember how I felt on the weekends that I wasn’t racing and how much I missed it,” Allmendinger said in a press release. “Competing full-time is a mentally tough battle at times.”

The 40-year-old driver last raced in NASCAR’s premier series full-time in 2018.

In his time at Kaulig Racing, Allmendinger has won 12 Xfinity Series races and one Cup race at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Circuit.
