Profile:

First making his debut in CAAL Racing’s No. 44 team in 2016, Justin Kunz has been a staple of the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. The young German has enjoyed a relatively successful career in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series with 20 Top 10 finishes as of the start of the 2019 season, and despite being only 21 years old, he has plenty of experience too with him being one of the drivers with the most starts in the Elite 2 class.

Last year, he pulled off the double duty in the No. 46 Racing-Total team, and he enjoyed a breakthrough year where he scored his first Euro Series podium finish at Tours as well as given the opportunity by Jennifer Jo Cobb to race in the Truck Series driving JJCR’s No. 0 Silverado at Mosport. This year, Kunz will embark on a new challenge as he will move to Dexwet-DF1 Racing to drive the No. 99 Remus Sportwear / Ünique Skis Chevrolet Camaro in the Elite 2 class.
