Returning to Richmond...The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) will make its second and final stop of the 2013 season at Richmond International Raceway (RIR) this weekend. Allgaier has unfinished business at RIR after running in the top 10 all night but coming home in the 31st position in the spring race due to contact with another competitor. Allgaier looks to continue his most recent short-track success from Bristol Motor Speedway where he brought his No. 31 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet home in fourth.
This Week's Camaro...This weekend the No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet team will utilize chassis TSM-333. TSM-333 has raced six times this season: Phoenix International Raceway (March), Bristol Motor Speedway (March), RIR(April), Iowa Speedway (June, August) and New Hampshire Motor Speedway (July).
Meet Justin...Allgaier will appear at the Chevy stage along with his Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) teammates on Friday, September 6 at 1:45 p.m. located in the RIR Fan Zone. Allgaier will also sign autographs at the NNS autograph session on Friday, September 6 from 2-3 p.m. at the amphitheater located behind the frontstretch grandstands.
Recapping Atlanta...The NNS made its one and only stop of the season at Atlanta Motor Speedway for a Saturday night, Labor Day weekend race. The weekend began with the first practice session on Friday evening under cloudy conditions. The final practice session of the weekend was held on Saturday morning, before qualifying followed in the afternoon. Allgaier and the Wolf Pack Energy Services team ran a total of 67 laps between the two practice sessions which earned them a qualifying spot of 21st out of 40 cars. Allgaier laid down a lap time of 31.198 seconds, which put him in the 14th-starting spot for the Great Clips/Grit Chips 300. After maintaining a top-15 position all night during the 195-lap race, Allgaier brought his No. 31 Wolf Pack Energy Services Chevrolet Camaro home in the 11th position for TSM.
Crew chief Scott Zipadelli on Richmond International Raceway:
"I'm looking forward to getting back to Richmond [International Raceway]. We will practice in the morning and race at night, so that always presents a little bit of a challenge because of the weather conditions. We were having a great race in the spring and unfortunately got caught in a wreck. Hopefully this time we will be able to stay out of trouble and bring home a great finish."
