Cassill will pilot the No. 10 Chevrolet and compete for the 2022 NXS championship alongside reigning champion Daniel Hemric, and Kaulig Racing's winningest driver, AJ Allmendinger.

"Continuing my partnership with Voyager Digital and driving for Kaulig Racing is an incredible opportunity for me," said Cassill. "I have a world-class partner in Voyager and the best support team in the business with Kaulig Racing. I am excited to not only have a shot at winning races, but to bring awareness to crypto and help educate people in a space that I've been personally invested in for a number of years."
