HScott Motorsports is pleased to announce that BRANDT Professional Agriculture will be the primary sponsor of the No. 51 Chevrolet SS driven by Justin Allgaier for the second year in a row. 2015 marks BRANDT’s sophomore season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) and with HScott Motorsports. BRANDT will adorn the car for 21 races, beginning with the season-opening Daytona 500 on February 22.
“I’m proud to represent BRANDT Professional Agriculture for another NASCAR season,” said Allgaier. “They’ve expanded their presence throughout the years in the motorsports world, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be partnered with them. BRANDT does a lot for the agriculture community, not only in the United States but around the world. I’ve joined them in helping with their different business initiatives as well as educating our youth. It’s fun to go to different schools and meet with National FFA Organization chapters around the country. I’m looking forward to continuing to drive the red BRANDT Chevy on the track, and helping to grow the BRANDT brand off of the track.”
“I’m glad to have the BRANDT colors back on the No. 51 Chevy,” said Harry Scott Jr., owner of HScott Motorsports. “Rick Brandt has built a world-class company in Springfield, Ill., and I’m proud to continue our association with them. We have experienced growth when it comes to our race team, Justin has grown as a driver and BRANDT’s business has grown. I think this is a win-win situation for everyone involved.”
Justin Allgaier ended his 2014 NSCS rookie season on a high note. He finished third in the Sunoco Rookie of Year standings and ended the season with top-15 and top-20 finishes. HScott Motorsports has expanded to a two-car operation for this season and driver Michael Annett will join Allgaier in his sophomore season in the NSCS.
“Justin and the NASCAR motorsports program has been a great asset to our agriculture business,” said Rick Brandt, President and CEO of BRANDT. “We’ve been able to establish a great connection with our customers as well as cultivate new partnerships with the use of the racing program. Justin is a talented young driver with a great future in the NSCS, and he always represents our brand in the highest regard. Harry is a first-class businessman and team owner. It has been a pleasure to partner with Harry in the Xfinity Series and make the move to the NSCS. We both look forward to continuing to build our brands in 2015.”
