“Majestic Steel coming on board at Kaulig Racing is huge,” said Kaulig Racing president Chris Rice. “Building a strong partnership together is going to be monumental for our growth on and off the track. We really identified with Majestic’s principles of innovation and disruption, they’re what our team works to bring to the track every day.”
