Back at Bristol: Justin Allgaier will be making his ninth start at Bristol Motor Speedway’s (BMS) .533-mile high-banked concrete bullring, the site of his first NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) win (2010). Allgaier has a good qualifying record at BMS, only qualifying outside the top-10 twice in his eight starts. 2013 Point Standings: After finishing seventh at Daytona International Speedway, third at Phoenix International Raceway and 15th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Allgaier is currently tied with Elliott Sadler and Brian Scott for second in the NNS point standings. Driver Rating: Allgaier has the highest average driver rating, 89.2, among drivers who have made eight starts at BMS. (Driver Rating formula combines wins, finishes, top-15 finishes, average running position while on lead lap, average speed under green, fastest lap, laps led and lead-lap finishes.) Meet Justin: Justin will participate in a Wii Boxing competition along with other drivers at Food City Race Night on Friday, March 15, at 6:30 p.m., located in Hospitality Village. Allgaier will also make appearances at the Nationwide Insurance suite and Bristol Motor Speedway suite Saturday morning before the race. In-Car Camera: The No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet Camaro will have an in-car camera sponsored by Nationwide Insurance for ESPN’s race broadcast of the Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 300 on Saturday. The camera will feature live shots from inside Allgaier’s cockpit during the 160-mile event. This Week’s Camaro: Crew chief Scott Zipadelli and the No. 31 BRANDT team will take TSM chassis number 333 this weekend to Bristol Motor Speedway. Allgaier brought the same chassis home to a third-place finish at Phoenix International Raceway. Watch and Listen: The Jeff Foxworthy Grit Chips 300 can be seen live on ESPN2 at 1:30 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 16. SiriusXM Satelitte Radio channel 90 and PRN will carry live race coverage at 1:30 p.m. EST. From the Crew Chief, Scott Zipadelli: “Bristol [Motor Speedway] is a great short track. Justin has been really good at qualifying up front and that will provide us with great track position which is a big advantage at a small track like Bristol.”  Justin Allgaier on Bristol Motor Speedway: “Bristol [Motor Speedway] is a very unique track, and it’s also where I won my first race. The concrete racing surface is different from most the tracks we go to. I usually qualify pretty well there, which is a huge advantage at a short track. Starting up front means we don’t have to play catch-up all day, and we can really focus on our own strategy.”
