"Martinsville will be an interesting race for me" - Justin Allgaier.

HScott Motorsports ready for Martinsville 500

Rookie at the Paper Clip... Justin Allgaier will be making his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) start at Martinsville Speedway in this weekend's STP 500. Not only will it be his first race at the 0.526-mile track affectionately known as the "paper clip" in a NSCS car, it will be his first career race at the track. Allgaier attempted a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race in 2005 in the No. 63 truck for Mike Mittler, but did not qualify. Martinsville is the first track this season that Allgaier has not raced at before in any NASCAR national series.

Auto Club Recap... Allgaier made his first NSCS start at Auto Club Speedway (ACS). Allgaier earned his best starting position, 28th, of the 2014 season at ACS. Just over halfway through the race, Allgaier blew a tire and came down pit road for an unscheduled green-flag pit stop. Unfortunately, Allgaier was never able to get back on the lead lap and finished in the 28th position for HScott Motorsports.

Sunoco Rookie of the Year... After graduating to the NSCS this season, Allgaier is competing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors in the No. 51 AccuDoc Solutions Chevy. In 2009, Allgaier took home the Rookie of the Year title in the NNS. After ACS, Allgaier is currently in third in the standings.

Justin Allgaier on Martinsville Speedway:
"Martinsville [Speedway] will be an interesting race for me. I went there in 2005 in a truck and didn't make the race. So it has been a long time since I've been on the track there. Qualifying will be very important there because it is a short track and you can go a lap down so easily. While I haven't raced at Martinsville, I have a lot of memories from there. I used to sit in the stands with my dad and watch races. Fortunately, he's still able to come to most of my races and will be there this weekend, so that will neat. I also wouldn't mind taking home the grandfather clock. It's one of the most well known trophies on the circuit and it would be neat to have in my house."

Crew Chief Steve Addington on Martinsville Speedway:
"I'm ready to get to Martinsville [Speedway]. It will be a little bit of a challenge for Justin this weekend since he doesn't really have any track time there. A good starting position will be key this weekend because it's a short track and it's hard to pass. A positive for this weekend is that it's a short track and Justin typically does well at those. He had a 17th-place finish at Bristol a couple of races ago, so that should provide him some confidence going into this weekend."

The lasting NASCAR legacy after Dale Earnhardt’s death

On February 18, 2001, seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Dale Earnhardt – the fearless ‘Intimidator’ – was in his element at Daytona International Speedway. While his own DEI team’s cars ran 1-2 towards the finish line, his famed #3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet Monte Carlo was playing rear gunner to block any late runs from the chasing pack. As the cars tore through Turns 3 and 4 on that fateful final lap, Earnhardt maintained the strongarm tactics that encapsulated his persona… but his actions in those moments sadly proved to be his last.
