AJ Allmendinger’s return adds to loaded 2021 Xfinity Series​


With some drivers publicly stating they’d rather spend another year in the Xfinity Series instead of running one season in Cup with the current car before the Next Gen car debuts in 2022, the Xfinity Series looks to have one of its deepest fields of drivers next season.

Cindric, who will move to Cup full-time in 2022, won six races with Team Penske, along with the title this past season.
Joe Gibbs Racing returns Harrison Burton (four wins this past season) and Brandon Jones (three wins), along with adding Daniel Hemric to its roster.
Allmendinger’s teammates at Kaulig Racing will be Justin Haley (three wins) and Jeb Burton.
JR Motorsports returns Justin Allgaier (three wins), Noah Gragson (two wins) and Michael Annett.
Cindric, Allgaier and Haley each raced for the championship in November at Phoenix.

“It’s not easy, by any means, just to run inside that top eight or nine every weekend,” Allmendinger said Tuesday. “It’s a difficult challenge. That’s what I love about it. It’s not easy. It’s our job to go out there and keep getting better.
“You look at the race teams that are involved, the Gibbs and Penskes and Stewart-Haas. You’ve got JR Motorsports that is associated with Hendrick Motorsports. RCR. It’s a lot of Cup teams that are part of this Xfinity Series. You’ve got a lot of young drivers that are really good. It’s not going to be easy, but that’s what I love about it.
