Stand Alone...The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) will make its first of two trips of the 2013 season to Joliet, Ill. and Chicagoland Speedway this weekend for the STP 300. With the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series having an off weekend, the NNS will be in the spotlight on Sunday afternoon. Nelson Piquet Jr. will make his first career NNS start at Chicagoland this weekend, but is no stranger to success at the 1.5-mile oval, having made two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with one top five and one top 10 to his credit.

This Week's Camaro...The No. 30 WORX team will have chassis TSM-329 for Sunday afternoon's race at Chicagoland. TSM-329 has been used three times this year by Piquet Jr., most recently at Dover International Speedway.

New Hampshire Recap...Making his first career NNS start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway last weekend, Piquet Jr. and his No. 30 Qualcomm team looked to put down laps and get familiar with the 1.058-mile oval in the 200-lap race. Despite suffering damage in his qualifying attempt, Piquet Jr. laid down the 15th-quickest lap at the "Magnificent Mile." However, the NNS rookie had to start at the rear of the field after his No. 30 Qualcomm team was forced to their backup car. After battling a loose wheel and undergoing an unscheduled green-flag pit stop during the middle portion of the race, Piquet Jr. and the No. 30 Qualcomm team fought back for a 12th-place finish.

Welcome Back...Piquet Jr. will again display the WORX Yard Tools colors on the No. 30 this weekend in Chicago. Established in 1994, WORX Yard Tools USA, based in Charlotte, N.C., is one of the fastest growing companies serving the global power equipment market today. A diversified manufacturer and marketer of a complete range of electric-powered lawn and garden equipment and related products, WORX has over 4000 employees worldwide. The WORX line-up includes innovative grass trimmers, chainsaws, lawn mowers, hedge trimmers, blowers and more. All WORX products are emission-free and feature intuitive functions, tool-less adjustments and best-of-industry ergonomics. You can find WORX yard tools at retailers such as Lowe's, Walmart, Sears, Amazon.com and local lawn & garden dealers. More information is available on the company's website, at www.WORX.com.

DASH 4 CASH...This weekend's race at Chicagoland Speedway will serve as the last chance to qualify for the final Dash 4 Cash race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 27th. The top-four finishers in the STP 300 running for NNS championship driver points are eligible for the Dash 4 Cash bonus in Indy.

Come and See...Piquet Jr. will join his Turner Scott Motorsports teammates, as well as other NNS drivers, in the autograph session on Saturday, July 20 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. CDT.

Watch and Listen...The STP 300 can be seen live on Sunday, July 21 on ESPN. Race coverage will begin at 2:30 p.m. EDT. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Nelson Piquet Jr. on his return to Chicago:
"I am looking forward to getting back on the track and making my return to Chicagoland Speedway this weekend. It's going to be really cool running on Sunday afternoon and having the NASCAR spotlight on the Nationwide Series this weekend. We have had some success at this track in the Truck Series, so hopefully I can take that knowledge and apply it towards this weekend's race. We have WORX back on board this weekend, so hopefully we can bring home a great finish for those guys."

The Riverton, Ill. native has one win (2011), two top-five and four top-10 finishes at the 1.5-mile track, finishing third in last year's summer race. It's also BRANDT's home track. The professional agriculture company is located in Springfield, Ill., and they will host approximately 200 guests at Chicagoland Speedway this weekend.

Media Availability...Allgaier will be available to the media on Saturday, July 20 at 4:15 p.m. local time in the Chicagoland Speedway media center.

In-Race Reporter...This weekend Allgaier will have a Sunoco in-car camera and will be the in-race reporter for the STP 300 on ESPN at Chicagoland Speedway. Television coverage begins with NNS Countdown on ESPN at 1:30 p.m. local time.

DASH 4 CASH...This weekend's race at Chicagoland Speedway will serve as the qualifier for the fourth and final Dash 4 Cash race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 27. The top-four finishers in the STP 300 running for NNS championship driver points are eligible for the final Dash 4 Cash bonus at Indianapolis.

This Week's Camaro...This weekend the No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet team will utilize chassis TSM-401. TSM-401 has been used two times this season: Charlotte Motor Speedway and Michigan International Speedway.

Recapping New Hampshire...The NNS completed its only stop of the season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) last weekend. Allgaier qualified his No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet Camaro sixth for CNBC Prime's 'The Profit' 200 on Saturday. After going into NASCAR's version of overtime, running out of fuel and completing 213 laps, Allgaier finished 13th at NHMS in the No. 31 BRANDT Professional Chevrolet for Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM). Allgaier is currently fourth in the NNS Driver Point Standings.

Meet Justin...Allgaier will sign autographs along with his TSM teammates from 5:00-6:00 p.m. local time on Saturday, July 20 at Champion's Park located behind the frontstretch grandstands Chicagoland Speedway.

Crew chief Scott Zipadelli on Chicagoland Speedway:
"Chicagoland [Speedway] has a few bumps that we have to be prepared for and it usually has long green flag runs. It is a fast track and it can be very hard to pass, but it does have a couple of different racing grooves which helps when it comes to passing in traffic. It's also Justin's and BRANDT's home track, and he's won there before so it's a pretty special weekend for both of them."

Justin Allgaier on Chicagoland Speedway:
"Chicagoland [Speedway] is one of my favorite race tracks. It's my home track and it's the home track for BRANDT. I've won there before, so it's a special place to me and my family. BRANDT is bringing about 200 customers and employees to the track; it's always neat to see the big section of red BRANDT shirts in the stands."

Kyle Larson
No. 32 International Chevrolet Camaro
Chicagoland Speedway | STP 300
July 21, 2013

Da Cubs, Da Bears, Da Nationwide Series...The NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) heads to the Windy City for the first of two events at Chicagoland Speedway. This will be Larson's first race at the 1.5-mile D-shaped oval in Joliet, Ill. Larson has been strong at the intermediate tracks so far in 2013, scoring two top-five and seven top-10 finishes at tracks 1-2 miles in length.

Keep On Trucking...For the first time this season, Larson's No. 32 Camaro will sport the orange and black paint scheme of International. Formed in 1902, International is a leading producer of medium trucks, heavy trucks and severe service vehicles. International's products, parts and services are sold through a network of nearly 1,000 dealer outlets in the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Mexico with more than 60 dealers in 90 countries throughout the world.

This Week's Camaro...Crew chief Trent Owens and the No. 32 International team have prepared chassis TSM-402 for competition this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway. TSM-402 has earned top-five finishes in its two previous starts this season at Charlotte Motor Speedway (fourth) and Michigan International Speedway (second).

DASH 4 CASH...This weekend's race at Chicagoland Speedway will serve as the final qualifier in the Nationwide Insurance Dash 4 Cash. The top-four finishers in the STP 300 running for NNS championship driver points are eligible for the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash bonus at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 27.

Meet and Greet...Larson will join his Turner Scott Motorsports teammates, as well as other NNS drivers, in the autograph session on Saturday, July 20 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. CDT at Champion's Park located behind the frontstretch grandstands.

Watch and Listen...The STP 300 can be seen live on Sunday, July 21 on ESPN. Race coverage will begin at 2:30 p.m. EDT. The event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Satellite Radio, channel 90.

Previous Race Recap...Larson headed to New Hampshire Motor Speedway to make his first NNS start at the 1.058-mile oval. After struggling to find speed in practice, Larson laid down the 13th-quickest time in qualifying and looked to add to his streak of eight consecutive top-ten finishes. After running in the top-15 throughout the entirety of the CNBC Prime's 'The Profit' 200 and moving up to eighth position for the final green/white/checkered restart, a late-race penalty for a restart violation relegated Larson to a 14th-place finish.

Kyle Larson on Chicagoland Speedway
"Unfortunately we broke our top-10 streak last weekend in Loudon, but I can't say enough for the consistency this team has shown at this point in the season. We have been really strong every week, especially at the mile-and-a-half tracks, so I think that we will be good even though it's my first time racing at Chicagoland. The chassis we're bringing has been really strong both times we've run it, so I have no doubt that we'll have a really fast piece. Hopefully I can learn this track quickly and start a new streak."
