HScott Motorsports pulled rookie Justin Allgaier from the entry list for the Sprint Showdown on Tuesday after accidents in three of his last four races.
Justin Allgaier started the season with a new car, a new crew chief and a relatively new pit crew.
"Social media, you put stuff out there, whether it be good or bad or indifferent," Allgaier said. "To have someone like that respond to it, that says a lot. Just how genuine how a lot of drivers are in this sport. Look at Dale Jr., one of our most notable, most influential and most valuable people in the sport. For him to take the time to tweet me, that was something that was pretty cool."
"For us, being a small independent team, obviously points races are the main focus," Allgaier said. "With crashing a couple of weeks ago at Talladega and crashing last week at Kansas, it puts a toll on a team and this is going to give us to really hit the reset button and push through. I understand it, I know why we are doing it. I would much rather go and try to win the 600 then to just make it through the Showdown and just make it through the 600."
