No. 31 BRANDT Chevrolet News and Notes


Weekend Rewind: Indianapolis - Justin Allgaier and the BRANDT team headed to the hallowed ground of Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the driver's first ever start. The team had extremely high hopes, bringing a new chassis and new paint scheme featuring BRANDT partner, Precision Tank & Equipment. In the end, Allgaier brought home a 12th-place finish and gained three points in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) point standings. Allgaier remains in fifth place, 75 points out of the lead.


Allgaier at Iowa Speedway - Allgaier has made five previous starts at the .875-mile Iowa short track, his last coming when the series visited in May. In those starts, the Midwest-native has notched three top-10s, led 49 laps and boasts a 6.0 starting average, coupled with an average finish of 13.2. At the May race, Allgaier started fifth and finished sixth, his highest track-finish to date.


Come See Me - Allgaier will make two public appearances this weekend at Iowa Speedway. The first is the track autograph session beginning at 1:45 p.m. and the second is at the Chevy display for Q&A at 3:00 p.m.


This Week's Impala - This weekend, Allgaier will drive TMS-320 in the U.S. Cellular 200 at Iowa Speedway. This car has become a short track workhorse, previously being used at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (eighth), Iowa Speedway I (sixth), Richmond International Raceway (15th) and Phoenix International Raceway (15th).


Allgaier on returning to Iowa Speedway:

"I think it's great that we have the chance to return to Iowa for a second time this season. The fans there are just so incredible and pack the stands every time we come out. I really enjoy the opportunity we have to be the feature race there as well. We are bringing back a car that's done pretty well on the short tracks. We had our best finish in it at Iowa in the spring. It will definitely be interesting though, racing there at night. I absolutely love short track racing under the lights. I've said it before, but I'd love it if we could make every race at night! It just brings an added element of excitement for both us as drivers, as well as the fans."
