Team BCR Rookie Driver Justin Allison Earns Third Straight Career Best Finish
(Brooklyn, MI – June 15, 2014) Rookie driver, Justin Allison earns his career best finish of 3rd in his Michigan debut on Friday. The finish marks his third career best finish this year after finishing 7th at Toledo and then 5th at Pocono.
“Once I got comfortable with the car in the first few laps of the race, the car was fast and I knew at that point we were going to have a car to beat,” says Allison.
Allison qualified the No. 88 HaVACo Ford Fusion in 12th for the Corrigan Oil 200 at Michigan Int’l Speedway.
Allison mentioned, “We were a little free in qualifying and I was a little conservative. I wasn’t sure what to expect during the race, but after five or 10 laps, the car handled really well.”
After starting 12th, the No. 88 Ford powered by RoushYates Engines, made its way up to the 4th position on lap 16. Allison posted faster lap times than the race leader, but lost too much track position to compete for the lead. Not until the leaders came onto pit road under green flag conditions, Allison would lead the race for three laps.
Team BCR called in the No. 88 HaVACo Ford under green flag conditions for a change of four Hoosier tires and Sunoco fuel, sending Allison back out to the 4th position.
The caution flag flew for the second time of the race on lap 75. Team BCR decided to keep the No. 88 out, but Allison would have to conserve as much fuel as possible. Once the green flag flew for the restart, Allison had one eye on the fuel pressure gauge and the other on the leader, leaving him to finish the race in the 3rd position.
“I have to thank Team BCR and Howard Bixman for giving me another great car,” says Allison. “We have led laps and have been very competitive the last three races. Now it’s time to lead the last lap for our first win. I also have to thank HaVACo along with Rush Racing Products for giving me the opportunity to carry on the family legacy.”
Team BCR and Justin Allison plan to enter in the Ansell ActivArmr 150 at Chicagoland Speedway on July 19.
