Ross Chastain will return to Kaulig Racing for Saturday's NASCAR Xfinity Series Cabo Wabo 250 at Michigan International Speedway, the organization announced on Wednesday.
The Alva, Florida native, who competes full-time in the NASCAR Cup Series for Trackhouse Racing, will pilot the No. 10 Chevrolet Camaro in what will serve as his fourth Xfinity Series start of 2023.
Jockey Made in America, a multi-race primary sponsor of Trackhouse Racing at NASCAR's top level, will serve as the primary sponsor of the Chevrolet Camaro. The company will also serve as the primary sponsor of Chastain's No. 1 Chevrolet in Sunday's FireKeepers Casino 400.
Saturday's 250-mile contest in Brooklyn, Michigan will mark a reunion between Chastain and Kaulig Racing, who haven't partnered since the Xfinity Series season-finale in 2020, the 30-year-old driver's final race as a full-timer for the organization.
In six previous trips to Michigan in the second-tier series, Chastain has recorded five finishes inside the top-20, and a track-best 12th in 2014 with Hattori Racing Enterprises. Saturday will mark his first start at the two-mile track with Kaulig Racing.
Chastain joins a robust driver lineup for Kaulig Racing's All-Star Car this season, which includes the likes of Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, AJ Allmendinger, Justin Haley, and Austin Dillon.
With this roster addition for Michigan, the organization has now tapped both Chastain and Daniel Suarez - Trackhouse Racing's two full-time drivers - as well as co-owner Justin Marks to pilot the No. 10 Chevrolet in 2023.
Saturday's Cabo Wabo 250 is currently a one-off for Chastain with Kaulig Racing, as the seventh-generation watermelon farmer is set to return to DGM Racing for next weekend's event at Indy's Road Course.
