Justin Allgaier ended an 80-race winless drought by visiting Victory Lane in last Saturday’s DC Solar 200 at Phoenix. It was his first checkered flag in the NASCAR XFINITY Series since Aug. 18, 2012 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montréal. That is a 4 1/2 year drought!
Allgaier hopes the wins begin to pile up, starting with Saturday’s Service King 300 at Auto Club Speedway (4 p.m. ET on FS1).
The No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet driver has three top 10s and an average finish of 14.0 in eight career starts at the two-mile track. It appears that the JR Motorsports “four horse team” of Justin Allgaier, Elliott Sadler, Michael Annett and William Byron could be the operations that everyone has to beat, week in and week out this year!
“I’m very much looking forward to going to Auto Club Speedway,” Allgaier said. “It’s fun, it’s fast and it’s slick. I think that when you add those three words together it makes for great racing.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
