Justin Allgaier admits he will have a steep learning curve as he moves into the big leagues of auto racing. But the Riverton native says he will make the most of his chance to drive in three NASCAR Sprint Cup series races this fall.
Appearing live on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show,” Allgaier says the Sprint Cup cars are faster and handle differently… and says he may only get a couple of hours of practice in one before his first race at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet on September 15th.
He says he’s not counting on victories, just on showing he has what it takes to stay in Sprint Cup competition next year. Allgaier’s Number 51 Chevy is being sponsored by Springfield-based Brandt Consolidated.
