Justin Allgaier on Auto Club Speedway
“I’m excited to get back to Auto Club Speedway, it’s a really fun race track with multiple lanes. Last fall we had a really good run, so adapting to the new team here at Turner Motorsports should be fairly easy and hope to get the BRANDT Monterey AgResources crew to victory lane.”
