Kaulig Racing announced Saturday morning that it has signed 19-year-old Justin Haley to a multi-year deal to drive the team’s No. 11 Xfinity car beginning in 2019.

“I am really looking forward to 2019,” said team owner Matt Kaulig in a statement. “Justin [Haley] is coming off of the best season of his young career and I can’t wait to see what he can do in the No. 11 car.”

Haley finished third in the Camping World Truck Series this past season, winning three times and scoring nine top-five finishes. Haley scored Truck wins at Gateway, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in the playoffs and at Texas in the playoffs.

He ran three races in the Xfinity Series. He crossed the finish line first at Daytona in July in his second career Xfinity start but NASCAR penalized him for going below the yellow lines to make the move. NASCAR dropped him to the last car on the lead lap. He finished 18th.

Details about personnel and sponsorship will be announced at a later date.
