Off the Wall With: Justin Allgaier

This week’s good sport: Sprint Cup driver Justin Allgaier

What’s fun besides racing?

Justin Allgaier: I’m kind of a flavor of the week kind of guy. I’ve always got some new hobby. I’d say two things. Go out on the lake and go wake surfing and then golfing. That is kind of my two getaways right now.

What’s the top item on your bucket list?

Allgaier: That is easy, going skydiving. Everyone always asks me why I want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. If you’ve ever looked at a skydiving plane they usually aren’t perfectly good. Maybe that is my motivation. I don’t know why, I’ve just always wanted to do it.

Your go-to on movie night is:

Allgaier: Here lately it has been American Sniper. I have it on my iPad and I’ve watched it quite a few times. Typically, for us, movie night consists of Frozen. My daughter only watches Frozen so I’ve seen it about 700 times. It gets a little old after a while but, if she is content with watching it, then it is worth it.

What’s one item that’s always in your grocery bag?

Allgaier: I don’t go to the grocery store very often. I would say, if I go, it is fruit. My wife hates it because I buy like every container of fruit or fresh fruit that I can possibly get. I’m always buying fruit and I never have time to eat it when we’re home so it usually goes bad before I eat it. That is my go to at the grocery store.

Most memorable fan interaction?

Allgaier: A couple of years ago I had a lady who was going to pass out. She was so excited to get to meet me that they literally had to sit her down. She was going to pass out. That was pretty awesome. I’m just a normal guy. I don’t feel like anything like that is ever going to be warranted. It was pretty awesome to see. I did want to make sure she was ok first, because that is most important, but once I knew she was ok I thought that was pretty awesome that she almost fainted.
