Layne Riggs will make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut driving the No. 11 Chevrolet Camaro Entry for Kaulig Racing with sponsorship from Infinity Communications Group at Texas Motor Speedway, the team announced Sept. 18.
Riggs will drive the No. 11 for three races in all, with his season also including events at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Martinsville Speedway.
Riggs has made six starts in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, compiling a career-best finish of third this season at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
“I’m so excited to be making my first NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Texas Motor Speedway with a team that has had success in the Xfinity Series,” Riggs said in a team release. “I am super thankful to Jeff Coffey at Infinity Communications along with the whole Kaulig Racing organization for giving me this opportunity. I am so ready to get on track!”
The son of NASCAR veteran Scott Riggs won the 2022 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series championship becoming the youngest to win the championship at 20-years-old.
“I’ve been watching Layne on the short-track circuit for a couple of years now and I am impressed what he has earned so far in his young career,” Chris Rice, president of Kaulig, said. “He’s had a couple of starts in the Truck Series and I look forward to seeing what he can do in one of our cars.”
