Due to Mother Nature not being a fan of racing this weekend, the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series will be featured in a 900-mile double-header day Monday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
While Kyle Busch was originally slated to pilot the No. 10 Kaulig Racing Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco Uniforms 300, the shuffling of the schedule has forced Kaulig Racing to shuffle the driver of its No. 10 car, as well.
On Sunday evening, the team Tweeted that Justin Haley, who pilots the Kaulig Racing No. 31 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series, will be sliding in behind the wheel in Monday's NASCAR Xfinity Series event in place of Busch.
Haley will now make his third NASCAR Xfinity Series start of the 2023 season. His two previous appearances have resulted in top-10 finishes for the No. 10 team. The 24-year-old is a four-time race winner in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Busch will now focus on his bid to win the Coca-Cola 600 in the No. 8 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet, while Haley will look to win a NASCAR Xfinity Series race for the team, and in the process log more laps to get a better idea of what the track holds for him in Monday afternoon's Coca-Cola 600.
It'll be a busy day for Haley, as he'll attempt to run all 900-miles, but seeing as Haley hails from Indiana, I'm sure he's probably always wanted to run more than 600-miles on Memorial Day weekend.
Haley sits 24th in the NASCAR Cup Series point standings after 13 races. The driver, in his second full-time NASCAR Cup Series season, has three top-10 finishes.
The NASCAR Xfinity Series Alsco Uniforms 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway is set to go green on Monday, May 29th at 11:00 AM ET, and will be televised on FS1. PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will carry the radio broadcast.
The Coca-Cola 600 will take place after the NASCAR Xfinity Series race. FOX will have the television broadcast beginning at 3:00 PM ET. PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will carry the live radio broadcast of the NASCAR Cup Series race as well.
