Justin Allgaier on Nashville Superspeedway

“Nashville is one of my favorite race tracks on the circuit. It’s a very tight-cornered track with long straightaways that require a loose-handling race car, but also requires a lot of patience on the driver’s part to succeed. Jimmy Elledge (crew chief) and I have been talking strategy, as this race is an important one because it’s our first stand-alone Nationwide Series event and points are going to be at a premium.”
