(Mooresville, NC – May 13, 2014) Having only speedway ARCA experience from Kansas, Daytona and Talladega, Justin Allison will make his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards short track debut at Toledo Speedway this weekend. Allison will pilot the No. 88 HaVACo Ford Fusion with Team BCR Racing.
Although this is Justin’s first ARCA short track race, running on short tracks is certainly nothing new. Allison started his racing career in the Allison Legacy Series in 2006, where the series’ schedule consists of mainly short tracks. From 2007-2010, he won five races in the series. He then continued to dominate as he won the Allison Legacy Series Championship in 2011, winning 7 races and finishing top-5, 20 times in 21 races. From 2012-2013, Allison ran select PASS Super Late Model races.
“All of my racing experience comes from short track racing,” says Allison. “I’m looking forward to going to Toledo. We have a winning short track program at Team BCR, and the No. 88 HaVACo Ford should be strong.”
Allison tested the No. 88 powered by RoushYates Engines at South Boston Speedway yesterday in preparation for the Menards 200.
Allison added, “Testing at South Boston Speedway gave me the extra confidence I needed. Short tracks are definitely more in my comfort zone. Howard Bixman and the crew gave me a great car, and I learned a great deal throughout the day. I know there’s room for improvement and a tremendous amount I need to learn moving forward. I’m really excited to see what the weekend holds for our #88 team.”
Crew Chief, Howard Bixman said, “Justin did an outstanding job at the test yesterday. Once we had our base line, he turned competitive laps and I can tell he feels very comfortable at a short track. We worked on all kinds of scenarios at the test from short runs, long runs and restarts. His feedback was excellent and he’s going to have one competitive car at Toledo.”
The HaVACo Souvenir Trailer will be at Toledo Speedway with all of Justin Allison’s “Continuing the Legacy” apparel including hats, shirts and more. Stop by if you’re at the track!
