Justin Allgaier and the BRANDT team overcame handling and a near overheating issue on Saturday afternoon in Kentucky to bring home another top-10 finish. After water and oil temperatures reached near catastrophic levels near the midpoint of the Kentucky 300, Allgaier had to vacate his seventh-place running position to come to the attention of his crew to remove grass that had built up on the grill. The team bounced back and finished eighth on the day, for Allgaier’s 17th top-10 finish of the season.

Allgaier at Dover International Speedway - Allgaier has made seven starts at the ‘Monster Mile’, scoring one top-five and four top-10 finishes. His highest finish of fifth came earlier this spring after starting seventh. The BRANDT driver has an average starting position of 15.4 and an average finish of 14.9 at Dover.

Northeastern Supply at Dover - As is the custom for the Dover races, Northeastern Supply will have a more prominent presence on the No. 31 Chevy, adorning the rear quarter panels of the bright red BRANDT car. The Baltimore, Maryland-based company will also have numerous employees at the track in support of their driver. Northeastern Supply is a leading, regional distributor of plumbing, heating, air conditioning, HVAC, water systems and hardware products.

Mile Track Stats - In the past 10 races at tracks measuring a mile in length, Allgaier is ranked second among fulltime NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers with 708 points scored. In those 10 races, he has scored one top-five and six top-10 finishes, with an average starting spot of 10.7 and an average finish of 12.2.

This Week’s Impala - This weekend, Allgaier will drive TMS-322 in the OneMain Financial 300 at the ‘Monster Mile’. This car was also raced at the first Dover race (fifth), as well as Las Vegas Motor Speedway (eighth), Darlington Raceway (13th), and the fall race at Bristol Motor Speedway (30th).

Allgaier on tackling the Monster Mile:  “We had a good race at Dover in the spring and I’m hopeful we can come back and improve on the finish. Dover is a really neat race track. It’s really fast and it’s amazing the feeling you get as a driver sailing off into turns one and two. My guys have continued to bring me awesome race cars every week and I really want to hold up my end of the deal and bring home a finish they all deserve. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be in victory lane getting one of those monster trophies? I’m ready, these guys are ready and BRANDT is ready to do that for sure.”
