Justin Allgaier, who will again be a part of the NASCAR Xfinity Series Championship 4 this weekend in Phoenix, will officially return to the No. 7 car for JR Motorsports again for the 2021 season. Allgaier and his long-time sponsor Brandt Agriculture have reached an extension with JRM.
According to a JR Motorsports team release, Brandt will be on the car for 20 races next season.
Allgaier, 34, is ready to keep chasing more hardware in 2021.
“I’m looking forward to being back at JR Motorsports next year and having the Brandt relationship extend another year. We’ve become like family and I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else,” said Allgaier. “I’m proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish together, not only from a production standpoint on the track and getting wins and being competitive week in and week out, but also being able to bring awareness to the agriculture industry and how important it is to everyday life. Our goal is to continue growing those successes as we battle for the championship this season and go for more wins next year.”
Brandt agriculture, which has stuck with Allgaier through thick and thin, are excited to potentially capture their first Xfinity Series title this weekend.
“We have built an amazing partnership with Justin and the Earnhardt family at JR Motorsports,” said Rick Brandt, President and CEO of Brandt. “Together we have had great success on the track and have established a unique platform to promote the agriculture industry and to grow our business. I look forward to closing out the 2020 season by securing our first Xfinity Series Championship! And I’m excited to continue this relationship in 2021.”
Allgaier, an Illinois-native, has 14-career wins in the NASCAR Xfinity Series through his career, including three this season alone. He also won the fall race at Phoenix a season ago, and has always had really great pace at the 1-mile oval. Confidence should be high for Allgaier this weekend.
