Justin Allgaier has made six attempts on restrictor-plate, superspeedways from 2013 through this year’s Daytona 500. The only time he had an incident-free race was in his first start in the 2013 Camping World RV Sales 500.
Allgaier finished on the lead lap in that race with a 24th-place finish. He also went the full distance in 2014 in the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega SuperSpeedway despite sustaining damage in two separate incidents. Another mid-20s finish is the most likely outcome Sunday, but he could do a little better if he stays undamaged. May 1 - 1:51 PM

Justin Allgaier spent approximately 75 of the 511 laps that made up the Food City 500 inside the top 10 and he was there when it mattered most. He earned his first career Cup top-10 with an eighth on the bullring.

His previous-best finish at NASCAR’s top level came earlier this year when he finished 12th in the Auto Club 400. This dark horse continues to impress.

It has been a tale of two practices for Justin Allgaier so far at Bristol Motor Speedway. He posted the third-quickest 10-lap average during Friday’s practice with a speed of 123.107 mph; 17 drivers ran 10 or more laps in that session. Allgaier had roughly the same speed in Saturday morning’s session with a 123.209 mph 10-lap average, but with more drivers working on race trim he slipped to 29th of 38 on the grid.

That is the nature of Bristol, but Allgaier had a strong qualification effort that landed him 15th on the grid. He should be able to finish in the low to mid-20s on Sunday.

If two starts last year are an indication, Justin Allgaier could be one of this week’s best dark horses. He finished 24th in the spring event and was 20th last fall at Texas Motor Speedway.

Allgaier had a solid run going with back-to-back top-20s at Phoenix and Auto Club before last week’s Martinsville crash. Fantasy owners looking for a great bargain should give him a second look.
Apr 11 - 5:26 PM

Justin Allgaier was one of the top performers at his salary cap level in back-to-back races at Phoenix and Auto Club; he finished 18th and 12th in those events respectively. Crash damage at Martinsville sent him home 42nd and may stall his momentum.

Identifying dark horses is a risky proposition, but it is necessary for winning one’s league. Keep an eye on Allgaier, but expand the parameters to include others at his level. Ultimately, finding the right sleeper requires a willingness to ride the highs and lows.
Apr 3 - 10:14 PM

Justin Allgaier completed all 1,000 laps of competition last year; he finished 23rd in the spring and was 17th in the fall.

This makes him a great alternative to some other bargain-priced drivers in salary cap games and should place him on a large number of rosters.

Justin Allgaier advanced to the second round of qualification, but he wanted a little more. He crashed in that session and will qualify 21st.

His official position once qualification winds up may not matter because he has every sign of needing to go to a backup.
Mar 27 - 6:54 PM

Qualification continues to be one of the most important factors in who will run well on a given weekend now that NASCAR has implemented new time trial procedures made up of multiple laps. In the Auto Club 400, no driver who started 25th or worse managed to crack the top 10 in the final rundown.

Justin Allgaier came closest with a 12th-place finish after starting 31st. While he failed to crack the top 10, he earned substantial place differential points and was a solid value. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. advanced 12 positions from his 27th-place start to finish 15th while Chris Buescher finished 20th from 33rd. No other sub-24th-place qualifier finished among the top 20.
Mar 23 - 10:55 AM

Justin Allgaier is coming off his best finish of 2015 after crossing under the checkers 18th at Phoenix. He hopes to keep that momentum alive.

This was Allgaier’s second top-20 of the year, which makes him a provisionally good fantasy pick as long as he fits the final niche on a player’s roster.

Justin Allgaier's No. 51 team that competes in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has been penalized for a rules infraction discovered during post-race inspection March 8 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Ballast was observed falling off the No. 51 car during the race and the No. 51 car did not meet post-race minimum weight requirements. As a result of the violation, crew chief Steve Addington has been fined $25,000.

Justin Allgaier will attempt to earn his fourth consecutive top-20 finish on a similarly-configured, 1.5-mile track this week. He finished 15th and 20th at Charlotte and Texas last fall, and then followed that up with a 20th at Atlanta last week.

At his salary cap level, Allgaier is one of the better values and could be one of this week’s top dark horse picks.
Mar 6 - 7:16 PM

Justin Allgaier progressively improved last year on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks and he looks to continue in 2015. It took nine attempts before he finished on the lead lap, but once he did he went the full distance at both Charlotte and Texas.

Allgaier was a good fantasy value on both tracks with a 15th in the Bank of America 500 and a 20th in the AAA Texas 500. He should be considered one of the top dark horses this week.
Feb 27 - 9:37 AM

Justin Allgaier will be back behind the wheel of Harry Scott’s No. 51 in 2015 and this team should continue to be considered one of the better values at their level in most fantasy games.

Last year Allgaier finished in the top 25 in nearly half of his starts, which was a level of consistency fantasy players can use to their benefit. Equally important, he finished on the cusp of the top 15 seven times with strong runs on a wide variety of track. That makes Allgaier a go-to starter whenever he fits the appropriate niche.

Auto-Owners Insurance will continue its relationship with the No. 51 Chevrolet SS driven by Justin Allgaier in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Auto-Owners Insurance will be the primary sponsor for three races during the 2015 season. The No. 51 will hit the track in the blue and white Auto-Owners Insurance paint scheme at Bristol Motor Speedway in April, Talladega Superspeedway in October and Martinsville Speedway in November. The three-race sponsorship marks the second season Auto-Owners has been involved in the NSCS and with HScott Motorsports.

Kyle Larson, Justin Allgaier, and Austin Dillon were all lined up in the Saturday morning practice session for the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500k. Larson had the 12th-quickest 10-lap average with Allgaier 13th, and Dillon 14th.

It took too long for the second- and third-place freshman in the standings to catch up to Larson’s performance and make this into a Rookie of the Year battle, but their late season surge makes them interesting fantasy picks.
