Following a victory in Friday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series event at Bristol Motor Speedway, Justin Allgaier announced that he and BRANDT Fresh Agriculture will return to JR Motorsports in 2024.
Serving as the second-longest tenured partner for JR Motorsports, BRANDT will continue its role as primary sponsor of the No. 7 Chevrolet for 20 NASCAR Xfinity Series events in 2024, while receiving associate placement in all the remaining events.
“I can’t say enough about this team, Rick Brandt and everyone at BRANDT Professional Agriculture,” Allgaier said from Victory Lane. “This seemed like the perfect time to break the news that we’ll be back in the No. 7 Chevrolet in 2024. I’m just so grateful for everyone at JR Motorsports.”
Allgaier and partner BRANDT first joined JR Motorsports in 2016, after jumping down from a two-year stint in the NASCAR Cup Series with HScott Motorsports. Since then, the partnership has remained steadfast, netting 19 NASCAR Xfinity Series victories.
“What a year,” said Rick Brandt, president and CEO of BRANDT. “As we cause a party here in Victory Lane, we are celebrating our 70th anniversary as a company, our founder, Evelyn Brandt Thomas’ 100th birthday, and our return to JRM for 2024. Let’s add one more celebration to the list: let’s go get that NASCAR Xfinity Championship.”
The company has had a long-standing presence in NASCAR, first joining forces with Allgaier in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2011. Since moving to JR Motorsports, the duo has been a championship-contending force, advancing to the final round of the Playoffs in five of the last seven years.
“This is the best way possible to announce that Justin and BRANDT are coming back next year,” said JRM CEO Kelley Earnhardt Miller. “I’m so proud of the relationship that we’ve built with Rick (Brandt) and to be able to extend both BRANDT and Justin is a testament to all the hard work of everyone at JR Motorsports.”
With Friday’s victory at Bristol, Allgaier is the first driver to lock his spot into the ‘Round of 8’, which the 37-year-old driver has done in each of the last eight Xfinity Series seasons.
