Justin Allgaier’s Career Season

Justin Allgaier’s Career Season

Eleven Points Away from the Xfinity Series ‘Regular Season Championship’

Coming into the 2018 season, Justin Allgaier had recorded a total of five NASCAR Xfinity Series wins. In 2018? He doubled his career total with five wins – and there are still eight races to go.

His two wins in 2017 set his previous career-high win tally.

To say the driver of the No. 7 JR Motorsports Chevrolet is having a career year would be an understatement. His five wins have helped him rack up 14 top-five finishes (also a career best) and 20 top 10s – a number he matched in 2010 and has only been bettered by the 27 he recorded in 2016.

He’s won three of the last five races, finishing third (Bristol) and seventh (Darlington) in the other two during that time period. In fact, Allgaier has finished in the top 10 in the last 13 races running, going back to a 37th-place finish at Pocono.

Allgaier has all but locked up the Xfinity Series regular season championship. He just needs to score 11 points in Saturday’s DC Solar 300 (5 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) to secure the title and the 15 additional Playoff points that will give him a decided advantage in the postseason.

In eight starts at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the venue for this weekend’s race, Allgaier has three top-five and seven top-10 finishes. His lone result outside the top 10 was a 15th-place finish in 2013.
