Riley Herbst, Monster Energy Staying With Stewart-Haas in Xfinity in 2022

Riley Herbst will continue to pilot the No. 98 car in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, Stewart-Haas Racing announced Nov. 15.

Monster Energy will also stay on as a partner.

Herbst finished his second full-time Xfinity season and first with SHR, earning five top fives and 13 top 10s in 2021. He ended the year 11th in the standings.

“Honestly, we’ve learned a lot since Daytona,” Herbst said in a release. I’m proud of how much this Monster Energy team has grown since our first race. We’ve come a long way from that brand new driver-team combo when the season started in February. We’ve been able to do a lot with the cards that have been dealt. The good news is that we’ve got another season together to continue to improve. Big things are coming for us.”
