Welcome Aboard...This weekend, Allgaier's No. 51 Chevy will sport the blue and white colors of Auto-Owners Insurance. AMS is the first of two races that Auto-Owners will adorn the car this season. Auto-Owners will also be on the No. 51 at Martinsville Speedway. Auto-Owners Insurance, a Fortune 500 company, is the 15th-largest property and casualty insurer in the country, based on written premiums. Headquartered in Lansing, Michigan, Auto-Owners Insurance employs more than 4,200 associates. The company is comprised of five property and casualty companies and a life company, and writes business in 26 states through 6,200 local independent agencies.

Meet Justin...Allgaier will appear at the E-Z-Go display on Saturday, August 30 at 4:30 - 5:00 p.m. EDT for an autograph session. On Sunday, August 31, he will participate in a Q&A at 3:30 - 3:45 p.m. EDT in the AMS Fan Zone.

Bristol II Recap...Allgaier made his second NSCS start at Bristol Motor Speedway last Saturday night. He was running in the top 15 at the 0.533-mile concrete track when a flat tire sent him down pit road for an unscheduled green-flag pit stop. Allgaier completed the race in the 19th position in the BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet 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 Auto-Owners InsuranceChevy. In 2009, Allgaier took home the Rookie of the Year title in the NNS. After Bristol, Allgaier is currently third in the standings, behind Kyle Larson and Austin Dillon.

Justin Allgaier on Atlanta Motor Speedway:
"This weekend at Atlanta [Motor Speedway] is a big weekend for everyone at HScott Motorsports. We have a new sponsor, Auto-Owners Insurance, on the car this weekend. Atlanta is a mile-and-a-half track and it his been a few weeks since we've raced on that length. Our mile-and-a-half program has improved quite a bit since the start of the season, so we will have another chance to showcase that this weekend. NASCAR announced the 2015 schedule and this will be Atlanta's last race on Labor Day weekend so it would be cool to get the win before it moves to the spring. Overall, I'm looking forward to a smooth weekend for our team."

Crew Chief Steve Addington on Atlanta Motor Speedway:
"We are really hitting our stride as team, and that has shown the last few weeks on the track. Unfortunately, we've had some bad luck, but that will eventually turn around and hopefully it does starting this weekend. Justin likes Atlanta [Motor Speedway] and he's led a few laps there in the Nationwide Series so that always helps with a driver's confidence. Atlanta is a long and hot race, and a lot of times it comes down to fuel mileage, so pit strategy will be very important this weekend."

About Competition Director and Crew Chief Steve Addington:
Spartanburg, S.C. native Steve Addington joined HScott Motorsports in January 2014 as competition director and crew chief for the No. 51 Auto-Owners Insurance Chevrolet SS. Steve comes to the team from Stewart-Haas Racing, where he spent two seasons as crew chief on the No. 14 team, earning four wins with Tony Stewart. Addington also served as a NSCS crew chief at Team Penske and Joe Gibbs Racing, racking up a total of 20 wins in the series. Addington began his career working on dirt cars and is a former NNS crew chief. Addington resides in China Grove, N.C. with his wife Katie and has three children.
