2014 Kentucky: Justin Allgaier NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Preview

Bluegrass State...Justin Allgaier will be making his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at Kentucky Speedway this weekend. Saturday night's race will be the fifth of 10 night races for the NSCS this season. Allgaier and the No. 51 BRANDT Professional Agriculture team tested at Kentucky for two days earlier this month, but only received limited track time due to weather. He has two top fives, four top 10s and has led 29 laps in seven NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) starts at the 1.5-mile track. Allgaier also has experience in the ARCA Racing Series at Kentucky, with three top fives and four top 10s in seven starts, and has two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Kentucky.

Sonoma Recap...Allgaier completed his first NSCS race at Sonoma Raceway He had never raced on the 1.99-mile road course until last Saturday when he participated in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West race to gain experience for the NSCS race. Allgaier finished that race in the 14th position after late-race contact. Allgaier qualified the No. 51 BRANDT Chevy 35th for the race. The Riverton, Ill. native finished 33rd in his inaugural NSCS race at Sonoma for HScott Motorsports.

Sunoco Rookie of the Year...After graduating to the NSCS this season, Allgaier is competing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in the No. 51 BRANDT Chevy. In 2009, Allgaier took home the Rookie of the Year title in the NNS. After Sonoma, Allgaier is currently third in the standings, behind Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon.

Justin Allgaier on Kentucky Speedway:
"I'm ready to get back to oval racing at Kentucky [Speedway]. I tested there earlier this month with my team. Unfortunately, we didn't actually get a lot of track time because of rain. They redid the start/finish line and I found out during the test that it's pretty rough compared to how it used to be. That'll be another factor affecting the car this weekend. We've been working on our mile-and-a-half program all season and we've been seeing improvements, so I hope we continue that trend this weekend."

Crew Chief Steve Addington on Kentucky Speedway:
"We tested at Kentucky [Speedway] earlier this month. We weren't able to get our two full days of testing in because of the rain, but we did get a little bit of track time. We've had time to go through those notes and apply them to this weekend. We need to keep qualifying well and have a mistake-free weekend. We're making gains each week on the oval tracks and I think we will see a continuation of that this weekend."
