Justin Allgaier Four-Time Victory: Dominance as NASCAR Xfinity Series Fan Favorite

Justin Allgaier Four-Time Victory: Justin Allgaier, behind the wheel of the No. 7 BRANDT Professional Agriculture Chevrolet for JR Motorsports, clinched his fourth NASCAR Xfinity Series Most Popular Driver Award for 2023, marking another remarkable season for the team.

This achievement extends JRM’s streak to 12 consecutive NXS Most Popular Driver titles, following Noah Gragson’s win in 2022. It also marks the 14th time in the past 16 seasons that a JRM driver has secured this accolade.

Expressing his gratitude, Allgaier shared, “I am incredibly humbled and appreciative to receive the Most Popular Driver honor for the fourth time in my career. The fans’ support means everything to me, and I’ve always aimed to enhance their experience. While on-track success is rewarding, being voted for this award by the fans is an indescribable accomplishment.”

Allgaier, who secured three successive MPD awards from 2019 to 2021, reclaimed the top spot in 2023. His exceptional performance throughout the season included four wins, 15 top-five finishes, and 20 top-10 finishes in 33 starts. Notably, he led for 643 laps and earned three poles during the campaign.

His three consecutive Most Popular Driver titles now tie him with Elliott Sadler, making history in the series. Sadler secured this honor from 2016 to 2018 while driving for JR Motorsports. Allgaier’s achievement this season has equaled Sadler’s remarkable feat.

Apart from Allgaier and Sadler, notable drivers who have earned this accolade for Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s team include Brad Keselowski (2008-09), Chase Elliott (2014-15), Regan Smith (2013), Danica Patrick (2012), and Noah Gragson (2022).
