For a seventh straight season, Justin Allgaier will return to JR Motorsports and drive the No. 7 Chevrolet in the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season, the team announced on Tuesday morning.
In his first six seasons with JRM, Allgaier, 35, has piled up 13 victories in 190 starts, including two this year (Atlanta Motor Speedway and Darlington Raceway). The Illinois native has been part of the Championship 4 in four out of the previous five seasons, and currently ranks third in the championship standings after 25 races.
Heading into the Xfinity Series’ regular season finale at Bristol Motor Speedway, Allgaier has 11 playoff points, but could earn up to eight more based on his position in the overall standings.
Last weekend at Richmond Raceway, the No. 7 Chevrolet finished fourth; Allgaier’s fourth straight top-10 finish — his longest such stretch since the fall of 2020.
