LOUDON, N.H. (June 27, 2009) – Justin Allgaier, driver of the Penske Racing No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge Charger, secured the 13th starting position for the start of today’s Camping World RV Sales 200 at the one-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
During qualifying, Allgaier posted a fast lap time of 29.971 seconds at a speed of 127.083 miles per hour. The effort was strong enough to secure the Verizon Wireless team the inside of the seventh row for today’s 200-lap race at the “Magic Mile.”
“After practice yesterday, we knew we had a car that would really race well,” commented Verizon Wireless Dodge driver Justin Allgaier. “We made a mock run at the start of ‘happy hour’ practice but it was overcast and a lot cooler than this morning. I wasn’t sure how our Verizon Wireless Dodge was going to handle during this morning’s qualifying session. The car was a bit tight at both ends of the track, but [crew chief] Chad Walter and all the guys on the Verizon Wireless Dodge did a great job getting this car ready for the race. I am excited about this afternoon and trying to get another solid finish.”
Coverage of the Camping World RV Sales 200 will air live on the ABC-TV network today beginning at 2:30 p.m. EDT and will be broadcast live on PRN as well as Sirius Satellite Radio, 128.
