Allgaier Heads to the Hoosier State Fourth in Points... Allgaier remains in fourth-place in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS) championship point standings, just 30 points behind leader and teammate Reed Sorenson. All three championship-contending Turner Motorsports drivers are currently in the top-10, with Sorenson leading and Jason Leffler in sixth place.
Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis (LORI) by the Numbers... The 25-year-old Turner Motorsports Chevy driver has two NNS starts at Lucas Oil Raceway. He is credited with one top-10 finish coming in August of last year. He has a 99.8% lap completion rate and an average finish of 14th.
Headed Home... Tab Smith, mechanic on the No. 31 Chevy, heads home this week as the Nationwide Series rolls into Indiana. The South Bend-native has been with the organization since 2002, seeing it grow from a single-car ARCA team to the largest stand-alone team in the NASCAR garage. Smith has one win at his home track, coming in 2007 with Jason Leffler behind the wheel. This year, Smith has been a part of the 31 team's one win, six top-five and 11 top-10 finishes.
This Week's Impala... The No. 31 Deft Finishes team will hit the track with chassis TMS-129 this weekend at LORI. This chassis last saw track time at Charlotte Motor Speedway where Allgaier started 15th, led five laps and finished in the 13th position.
Looking ahead at the Dash 4 Cash... After finishing among the top-four NNS regulars at Daytona International Speedway, Allgaier is qualified for the second Nationwide Insurance "Dash 4 Cash" race coming up next week at Iowa Speedway. He will compete with Turner Motorsports teammates, Leffler and Sorenson, and fellow championship contender Michael Annett.
Justin Allgaier on Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis: "Lucas Oil Raceway is such a great track with a lot of NASCAR history around it. It's definitely a track that I look forward to racing each year and it will definitely be missed," said Allgaier. "We had a great run last weekend in Nashville. We need to keep this momentum up and bring home a great finish for Deft Finishes and continue to gain on the championship leaders."
