Allgaier has qualified in the top 10 for all five of his Kentucky starts, and has two top-five and four top-10 finishes.   DASH 4 CASH...This weekend's race at Kentucky Speedway will serve as the Qualifier for the first Dash 4 Cash race at Daytona International Speedway on July 5. The top-four finishers in the Feed The Children 300 running for NNS championship driver points are eligible for the first Dash 4 Cash bonus in Daytona.   This Week's Camaro...This weekend the No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet team will utilize chassis TSM-330. TSM-330 has been used twice this season: Auto Club Speedway and Darlington Raceway.   Recapping Road America...Allgaier qualified fourth for the Johnsonville Sausage 200 at Road America. The 4.048-mile, 14-turn road course did not have a lack of action with eight restarts, including two attempts at a green/white/checkered finish to make the race five laps longer than originally scheduled. Allgaier led lap 43 and was passed by AJ Allmendinger, who he battled for the race lead the remainder of the day. Allgaier ultimately finished second at Road America in the No. 31 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet Camaro. Allgaier moved up to second in the NNS Driver Point Standings.   In-Car Camera...The No. 31 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet Camaro will have an in-car camera sponsored by Chevy for the race broadcast. This weekend's 13th Annual Feed The Children 300 can be seen live on ESPN on Friday, June 28 at 7:00 p.m. EDT.

Allgaier will sign autographs 3:30-5:30 p.m. local time, hot laps begin at 6:00 p.m. and the race begins at 7:00 p.m. Lincoln Speedway is located in Lincoln, Ill. on the Logan County Fairgrounds.   Crew chief Scott Zipadelli on Kentucky Speedway: "Kentucky [Speedway] has a lot of character. We will practice during the day, but we race at night, which is always a little bit of challenge because of how the track changes. The weather is going to play a role this weekend, the track will be hot and slick and there's rain in the forecast too. Overall, Justin has great finishes at Kentucky and we look forward to having another great race there."   Justin Allgaier on Kentucky Speedway: "I'm really looking forward to Kentucky [Speedway]. It's kind of the kick-off to our summer hot races. It's a night race, which always puts on a good show for the fans. It's also a challenging race track, but I've run pretty well there in the past. It's nice to carry the momentum of a second-place finish at Road America into the weekend."   TSM PR
