It is worth noting that Brandt is regarded as the most successful sponsor in JRM history. For the uninitiated, the Illinois-based company is a family-owned agricultural company. It primarily deals with innovative products and services to earn maximum yield from crops. The brand is fairly well-known because of its presence in 49 states and more than 80 countries.

“This business is all about relationships,” said Kelley Earnhardt Miller, JRM general manager.

BRANDT CEO Rick Brandt declared that he was thrilled to extend their partnership with JRM and Allgaier. He insisted that he looks forward to seeing how well the entity performs on the field or on the race track. The two parties first linked up all the way back in 2011.

Allgaier himself has gone from strength to strength and established himself as a serious title threat. In fact, from 2016 onwards, he has been a perennial title contender for JRM. To be precise, he reached the Championship 4 in four of the last five seasons, with a career-best second in 2020. He has also become the most successful JRM driver with 13 Xfinity Series victories.

For now, though, Justin Allgaier will be focused on the 2021 Xfinity Series campaign. This weekend, he heads to Bristol for the regular season finale, as he battles with AJ Allmendinger and Austin Cindric. From there, he and the Playoff drivers will turn up the wick in the championship dogfight.
