CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Justin Allgaier, who finished sixth in NASCAR Nationwide Series points in 2012 and earned one victory in 2012, will return to the newly renamed Turner Scott Motorsports next season along with his longtime sponsor Brandt, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary as a company.
Allgaier, an Illinois native like his sponsor, was the 2009 Nationwide Rookie of the Year and has three wins under his belt. After driving for Penske Racing, he moved to Turner Scott Motorsports, where he has piloted the No. 31 to 12 top-five finishes and 36 top-10s. Two of his three wins came with Turner Scott, first at Chicagoland, home track to both parties, and last year at Montreal.
President and CEO Rick C. Brandt said returning as the primary sponsor to the No. 31 shows the company’s dedication and commitment to motorsports marketing.
As for Allgaier, he couldn’t be happier.
"I am so excited to come back with Brandt on my car," said Allgaier. "I've known the people at Brandt for years and I could not be more proud of representing them on and off the track. They are a family-owned business with literal roots in my home community."
