Justin Allgaier on Charlotte Motor Speedway:

“I’m ready to get back to action at Charlotte. It’s where I made my Nationwide Series debut and we usually run pretty well there. We’re bringing a strong car that I really like. Hopefully we’ll unload well and be a contender all night,” said Allgaier. “I get to play coach as Ashley turns laps in her BRANDT Bandolero Saturday afternoon, which will be exciting to watch. She’s really competitive and has been around racing for a long time, so I think she is going to bring home the win for us!”
