Last season, Allmendinger picked up the first victory for Nutrien Ag Solutions as a primary sponsor in NASCAR, when he drove his No. 16 Chevrolet Camaro to a victory at Circuit of The Americas in March.
The Los Gatos, California-native would go on to secure an additional three victories in the NASCAR Xfinity Series while carrying the company's colors, at Portland, Indy's Road Course, and Charlotte's ROVAL.
“We are excited to continue building our partnership with Nutrien Ag Solutions and have them be a part of our Cup program this season,” said Chris Rice, President of Kaulig Racing. “AJ is passionate about racing, so to have him on track representing growers who share that same passion is truly special.”
Since the relationship between Nutrien Ag Solutions and Kaulig Racing began in 2019, the company has served as a primary sponsor of one of the organization's entries in 58 NASCAR Xfinity Series races.
“We are thrilled to continue leading the field the 2023 season with AJ and Kaulig Racing.” said David Elser, Senior Vice President of North American Retail for Nutrien Ag Solutions. “The drive and determination that fuels our growers across North America also fuels AJ and the team. We can’t wait to root him on to continued success.”
