JR Motorsports announced today that SiteOne Landscape Supply, Inc., the only national full-line wholesale distributor of landscape supplies in the United States, will return as a primary sponsor of Justin Allgaier and the No. 7 team. SiteOne, headquartered in Roswell, Georgia, will partner with JRM for the upcoming NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Saturday, March 14.
This will mark the second time SiteOne will be on the hood of the No. 7 Camaro. The nation’s leading landscape supplier for green industry professionals first partnered up with the team back in 2018 for the spring NXS race at Dover International Speedway. Allgaier scored his first of five victories on the season in that event.
“We’re excited to partner with Justin and JR Motorsports again this year,” said Greg Kirksey, director of brand marketing for SiteOne. “It was a thrilling experience to be part of the No. 7 team in 2018 and a great way to connect with many of our customers who are big fans of the sport. We’re hoping to recreate some of that magic again.”
Allgaier is in his fifth year with JRM and his 10th full-time season in NXS competition. The 33-year-old driver has 11 series victories, 85 top fives and 177 top 10s to his credit. In nine starts at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Allgaier has two top fives and five top 10s, including a third-place run last season.
“I’m looking forward to having SiteOne Landscape Supply back on board with us in 2020,” said Allgaier. “They’re a great company and I feel fortunate to get the chance to represent them once again. Last time they partnered with us we ended the day in Victory Lane and I know this No. 7 team would love to be able to make that happen for them again this weekend when we head to Atlanta.”
Through the first four races of the season, Allgaier is looking to get on track. Yes, he’s led 140 laps already and has three stage wins. But, his finishes just haven’t been there. The Illinois native was 30th in Daytona, eighth in Vegas, 12th in Fontana and 13th last Saturday in Phoenix.
The speed has been there, the results haven’t.
“I’m really looking forward to getting to Atlanta,” Allgaier continued. Our JR Motorsports Camaros have had a lot of speed this season and this No. 7 team has been stout every week. We’ve led a lot of laps and won some stages, now we just need to put it all together and get that victory. I feel like we’ve got a great chance to get it done this weekend with our SiteOne Landscape Supply Chevy.”
Allgaier performed well earlier this year at Las Vegas, the initial 1.5-mile track the NXS raced on in 2020, earning a stage win and leading 63 laps on his way to a top-10 finish.
