Chandler Smith, No. 13 Quick Tie Products Camaro ZL1


  • Chandler Smith will attempt his first NASCAR All-Star Race on Sunday at North Wilkesboro Speedway.
  • Smith has made one previous NCS start earlier this season at Richmond Raceway, where he finished in 17th place.



“It’s really cool getting the opportunity to race at North Wilkesboro this weekend. The history of the track and how it all came back together is awesome. What I’m most excited for is the chance to hopefully transfer in and compete in my first All-Star Race. Tire falloff will be huge all night, but it’s something I’m used to with racing Late Models on short tracks all my life. I raced in the Late Model race there on Tuesday to get an understanding for the track, so while the Cup cars handle completely different, it gives a good baseline of what to expect.”

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Campers Inn RV Camaro ZL1


  • AJ Allmendinger has competed in six NASCAR All-Star events with a best finish of seventh in the 2022 NASCAR All-Star Race with Kaulig Racing.
  • Allmendinger will compete in the NASCAR All-Star Open and attempt to race his way into the 2023 All-Star Race.


“It’ll be interesting to see the All-Star Race at North Wilkesboro come together this weekend. It’s an exciting event for fans with a track that’s rich in grass-roots-racing history. It’s always an honor to be a part of the All-Star race, so hopefully we put a Kaulig Racing car in the main event.”

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1


  • Justin Haley has competed in one NASCAR All-Star Race in 2020. He finished the race in 14th place.
  • Haley will compete in the NASCAR All-Star Open and attempt to race his way into the 2023 All-Star Race.


“I’m very curious to see what North Wilkesboro has to offer. Obviously, we are not locked into the big show, so we will have to race our way in. It will be interesting to see what the tires do, as it’s a low-grip racetrack with a lot of tire wear. Coming off a strong run in Darlington, I’m excited to see if we can turn some heads and get a Kaulig Racing car into the All-Star Race.”
