Riverton native Justin Allgaier will fulfill his longtime dream of driving in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series next month, after his longtime Nationwide Series sponsor Brandt Consolidated stepped up to sponsor him in three races this fall.
Allgaier is getting his shot after the sale of Phoenix Racing to Harry Scott, Jr. Scott then turned to Allgaier and Brandt for the team's Sprint Cup debut. Allgaier will first compete in a Sprint Cup race on September 15th at the Chicagoland Speedway. He will also drive the Number 51 Chevy for Brandt in Charlotte on October 12th, and Talladega on October 20th.
Allgaier says he's thrilled to finally get his long-awaited opportunity to drive in stock car racing's premier circuit. Springfield-based Brandt says it's equally happy to get the increased exposure that goes along with a Sprint Cup sponsorship.
