On Friday, Kaulig Racing announced that Austin Dillon will pilot the team's No. 10 All-Star entry for the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Auto Club Speedway.
Dillon, who pilots the No. 3 entry for Richard Childress Racing full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series, is the 2013 NASCAR Xfinity Series champion, and he competed in two NASCAR Xfinity Series races a season ago.
Between 2018 and 2019, Dillon competed in five races for Kaulig Racing in the team's No. 10 NASCAR Xfinity Series entry. In that five-race stint, Dillon had a best finish of fourth, which came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the 2019 campaign.
Overall, Dillon has recorded nine victories over the course of his NASCAR Xfinity Series career, and he is coming off a successful season in the NASCAR Cup Series.
In 2022, Dillon scored a dramatic win at Daytona International Speedway, the final race of the NASCAR Cup Series regular season, to secure his place in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.
Dillon would end the season 11th in the NASCAR Cup Series championship standings after recording five top-five finishes and 11 top-10s over the course of the 36-race NASCAR Cup Series season.
Dillon joins Justin Haley, who was named to drive the No. 10 Kaulig Racing entry in multiple races in 2023 beginning with the season-opening NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Daytona International Speedway back on January 20th.
Kaulig Racing shifted its No. 10 NASCAR Xfinity Series entry to an All-Star cast of drivers when Landon Cassill, who had been announced as a full-time competitor for the 2023 season, found sponsorship troubles.
