Allgaier finished the 2011 season third in the overall NASCAR Nationwide Series championship point standings, notching one win, six top-five finishes and 17 top-10 finishes. His lone win came at Chicagoland Speedway, the home track of both BRANDT and Allgaier.
BRANDT President and CEO, Rick C. Brandt, is enthusiastic about the company's return to NNS competition with Turner Motorsports, saying, "We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our first season in NASCAR and look forward to returning as a championship contending team with Turner Motorsports and Justin Allgaier in the Nationwide Series. We look to expand on the successes we had with the program both on and off the track in 2011 and take the program to the next level in 2012."
