Justin Allgaier currently competes full time at the Nationwide level in Turner-Scott's #31 Chevrolet sponsored by Brandt. Along with crew chief Scott Zipadelli (brother of Stewart-Haas Racing Competition Director Greg Zipadelli), he's running a solid sixth place in the series standings. This is his fifth full season at the Nationwide level and he's never finished below sixth in the final standings. He's a former ARCA series champion as well. Yet Allgaier has never had a sniff at the Sprint Cup level. He's watched drivers who finished behind him in the standings get Cup rides while he waits for the phone to ring. Given his history with the team, there's every reason to believe that Turner-Scott will promote Allgaier to the Sprint Cup level next season. And instead of debuting in sub-standard equipment, he'll be running cars that are capable of leading laps and winning races. In this case, patience is rewarded.
08/13/13 Multiple sources say the sale of the #51-Phoenix Racing Sprint Cup Series team to Turner-Scott Motorsports principal Harry Scott, Jr. is now complete, and will be officially announced on September 1 weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Finch will continue to operate the team until then, in an effort to maintain its 27th-place owner points standing. Godfather Motorsports
