JR Motorsports retains its Championship 4 driver


Justin Allgaier will be back with JR Motorsports next season in the Xfinity Series, and he will have a new paint scheme from his primary sponsor.

Brandt Professional Agriculture is returning as the primary sponsor for Allgaier, and his No. 7 Chevrolet will look a bit different in 2018. Brandt has sponsored Allgaier for the last eight years, including the last three at JR Motorsports.

Brandt will sponsor Allgaier in 19 races this season according to NBC Sports.


Allgaier is coming off of back-to-back appearances in the Championship 4 in the Xfinity Series. He finished third in both 2016 and 2017. He's finished in the top 6 in each of the last seven seasons, though he hasn't been able to finish higher than third.

He has five wins and 128 top-10s during his eight-year career in the Xfinity Series, and he will look for his first championship in 2018.
