Originally written April 10, 2013 on Start 'N' Park Blog:
Friday Night Lights: Following a two-week hiatus, the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) returns to the track for Friday night racing at Texas Motor Speedway. Allgaier, coming off an 11th-place finish at Auto Club Speedway, finished both 2012 Texas Motor Speedway races in the top 10. All three Turner Scott Motorsports teams tested at Texas on April 1-2, in preparation for this weekend’s race and the remaining 1.5-mile tracks on the NNS schedule. 2013 Point Standings: Heading into the sixth race of the season, Allgaier is currently fourth in the NNS point standings. He’s one point behind third-place driver Brian Scott and four points behind second-place driver Regan Smith. In-Car Camera: The No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet Camaro will have an in-car camera sponsored by Nationwide Insurance for ESPN2′s race broadcast of the O’Reilly Auto Parts 300 on Friday evening. The camera will feature live shots from inside Allgaier’s cockpit during the 300-mile event. Meet Justin: Allgaier will appear at the Chevy stage along with teammates Kyle Larson and Nelson Piquet Jr. for a fan Q&A on Friday, April 12 from 1:45 – 2 p.m. CDT, located in the fan midway. This Week’s Camaro: Chassis TSM-320 will once again be put to work in NNS competition this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. This is the same chassis the No. 31 BRANDT Chevy Camaro team used at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Crew Chief Scott Zipadelli on Texas Motor Speedway: “Texas [Motor Speedway] is a fast track but loses grip when the sun comes out, so we are hoping for cooler temperatures. We practice in the morning and race at night, which makes it a little more difficult, and the speeds will pick up as the sun goes down. I expect we will have a good weekend with the No. 31 BRANDT Chevy Camaro.” Justin Allgaier on Texas Motor Speedway: “I’m looking forward to returning to Texas [Motor Speedway]. We had top-10 finishes there last season, and we tested there last week, which should be a big help going into this race. Our test went well; we learned a lot and can’t wait to try a few new things at Texas. No matter what happens, night racing is always fun for us and the fans.”
