Kaz Grala Snags Hyperice Sponsorship for Daytona 500 Attempt

Kaz Grala will carry Hyperice sponsorship in the 2021 Daytona 500, Kaulig Racing announced Feb. 8.

Grala, 22, will carry the technology company on the No. 16 while attempting to qualify for his first Daytona 500 and second career NASCAR Cup Series start.

“I’ve been using Hyperice products for a couple years now to complement my training program,” Grala said in a team release. “Not only have they helped me increase my mobility, but I rely on them each week to get my body ready for the track after intense training between races. I couldn’t think of a better fit to join me in my first Daytona 500 than Hyperice. Now it’s time to get to work and move better together.”

Grala finished seventh in his Cup debut last year while filling in for Austin Dillon at the Daytona International Speedway road course. He also snagged one top five and three top 10s in five starts with Richard Childress Racing’s Xfinity Series team in 2020.

Kaulig’s No. 16 will run a part-time schedule in 2021 in the Cup Series, with AJ Allmendinger stepping in at the Daytona road course next week.
