Justin Allgaier

CREW CHIEF: Jason Burdett

TEAM: JR Motorsports

POINTS: Fourth

WINS: One (Phoenix 2)

LAPS LED: 607 (Second-most in a single season in his career; top was 741 in 2018)

TOP 5s: 16 (Second-most in a single season in his career; top was 17 in 2018)

TOP 10s: 24 (tied for second-most in single season in his career)


WHAT WENT RIGHT: Had a very strong season overall, although he struggled to just one win. But that one win was huge, as it put him into the Xfinity Series Championship 4 race.Also, recorded best single-season average start (7.3) and finish (9.0) in his career.

WHAT WENT WRONG: Went from career-best five wins in 2018 to just one win in 2019. Consistency and mistakes contributed to much of that, including just 24 lead lap finishes. And let’s not forget the tough competition he faced, including two-time champ Tyler Reddick, Christopher Bell and Cole Custer.

WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2020: Allgaier turns 34 next June. Look for a significant jump in his overall performance for at least one reason: Reddick, Bell and Custer will have moved on to the Cup Series full-time.
