Auto Club Weekend: Following a Coors Light Pole Award and an eighth-place finish in the Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 300 at Bristol Motor Speedway, Allgaier and the No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet Camaro team head out west. Allgaier will be making his seventh career start at Auto Club Speedway (ACS). Last year, Allgaier was leading the race when an engine failure ended his day prematurely and relegated him to a 32nd-place finish. 2013 Point Standings: With three top-10 and one top-five finish in the first four races of 2013, Allgaier’s consistent performance has helped him remain second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) point standings. Driver Rating: Allgaier has the highest average driver rating, 93.4, among drivers who have made six starts at ACS and competed fulltime in the Nationwide Series in 2012. (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.) Big Weekend for BRANDT: BRANDT will host the No. 31 BRANDT crew members and guests at K1 Speed in Ontario, CA for an evening of go-kart racing on Friday. BRANDT will also host approximately 185 employees and customers this weekend at ACS. The guests will be treated to a garage tour and hospitality before enjoying the Royal Purple 300 from the grandstands. Meet Justin: Allgaier will be attending the Auto Club Speedway NNS autograph session to meet and sign for fans following NNS final practice on Friday, March 22 from 4:30 – 5:15 p.m. PDT in the fan midway. From the Crew Chief, Scott Zipadelli: “Auto Club [Speedway] is a fast and bumpy track. As the track ages, the bumps are more noticeable and it lacks grip. There’s not a lot of cautions so we have to be prepared for long green flag runs and green flag pit stops. Justin really likes the track and I expect we will have a good weekend with the No. 31 BRANDT Chevy Camaro.” Justin Allgaier on Auto Club Speedway: “Auto Club [Speedway] is a very fast 2-mile track with a couple of different racing lines to make passes. We qualified well there last season and were leading the race before we had an engine problem, so I’m hoping for a better result this year.”
