With his first career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series win coming Sunday (July 7) at Daytona International Speedway, Justin Haley became the 193rd driver to win a race in NASCAR’s elite series.
Haley, 20, won in his third career start in the series for Spire Motorsports. His prior two races, both with Spire this season, netted a 32nd-place run at Talladega and a 34th-place run at Sonoma.
“It’s pretty incredible that I have so many great people around me that have given me this opportunity to come here to this level and stage that we are performing on,” Haley said.
The last two weeks has featured first-time winners. Last week, Alex Bowman, captured the checkered flag at Chicagoland Speedway.
