An Up and Down Xfinity Debut for Julia Landauer

An Up and Down Xfinity Debut for Julia Landauer

“I’m so giddy!”


This writer and NASCAR fan was very pleased with the joy that Julia Landauer displayed after qualifying for her Xfinity Debut on time.

Julia, a thirty-year-old New York City native was a fresh prospect in the NASCAR Next class of 2016 – a group that included current Cup Series rookies Harrison Burton and Todd Gilliland, who each made a fairly standard climb to their present-day roles. Landauer’s path was more of a zigzag.


Ms. Landauer’s route was not so direct. However, she found a way to get sponsorship and return to the sport. Yesterday was finally her opportunity to compete at a higher level. Julia qualified her #45 Chevrolet in the 32 position for the ‘Crayon 200’ at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.


“First NASCAR Xfinity race is in the books. We had some highs, like qualifying in on time and passing cars in the beginning of the race! We had some lows, like getting crashed by a leader, doing my best with a broken car, and then making a mistake.”


“I learned a lot and am so grateful to my @TeamAlphaPrime guys for working hard to get me back on track all day. I jumped in the deep end and they helped me get up to speed”


“Major shouts to @BossBeautiesNFT, @GarageXYZ, and Penta ESP for sponsoring me in my debut, couldn’t have done all this without you.”


“Thank you to all of you amazing people who have sent me the most encouraging, warm, and supportive notes I’m so lucky to have you on this journey with me!”


“Lastly, thank you to @J_Allgaier for apologizing (I guess we “made it” to victory lane ) and I also apologize to @mattmillsracing for my mistake.”


Julia recorded a thirty-six (36) place finish. With her two on-track incidences, her sponsors received plenty of television play time. Hopefully we will get to see her back on track soon.
