Allgaier to Make Second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Start at Kansas
Allgaier's second NSCS start comes just four weeks after making his NSCS debut at Chicagoland Speedway in mid-September. After a five-hour rain delay, Allgaier brought the No. 51 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevy home in the 27th position. Allgaier, 27, is a native of Riverton, Ill, and drives for Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS).
BRANDT, Allgaier's current NNS sponsor, will be the primary sponsor on the No. 51 Chevrolet this weekend at Kansas. Allgaier's NSCS schedule has been amended from the original selected races. Allgaier will now race this weekend at Kansas Speedway, as well as Talladega Superspeedway and Phoenix International Raceway. Allgaier will no longer be behind the wheel of the No. 51 Chevrolet SS at Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS). A driver announcement for CMS will be forthcoming.
"I'm looking forward to making my second start in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series," said Allgaier. "There are a few hours of testing on Thursday at Kansas [Speedway] which will give me more seat time in the car. My goal for the weekend is to be nice and steady, and to learn as much as I can. I can't thank everyone at BRANDT and Phoenix Racing enough for this opportunity."
Allgaier has four starts at Kansas in both the ARCA Racing Series (2005-2008) and the NNS. He has an average finish of 7.8 in the NNS with three laps led at the 1.5-mile track. Allgaier will continue to drive the No. 31 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet Camaro for TSM in the NNS.
