Like most modern-day NASCAR stars, Justin Allgaier's race-car beginnings came at the tender age of five, behind the wheel of a quarter midget roadster. The Riverton, Ill. native and son of Mike and Dorothy Allgaier, Hoosier Tire Distributors and racers, Allgaier was around racing since he was born.

But it wasn’t until 2008, at the age of 22, that Allgaier experienced his true breakthrough in racing. In 21 ARCA Series races, Allgaier won six times – including a road-course victory and a thrilling superspeedway win at Talladega.

The 2008 season also marked the beginning of Allgaier’s relationship with Penske Racing. He joined the team’s driver development program and made four Nationwide Series starts in the Penske Truck Rental Dodge to close out the season.

In 2009, Allgaier made the most of his opportunities with the Penske team. He was selected to drive the No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dodge in Nationwide Series competition, marking Penske Racing’s first full-time entry in the series. Allgaier and the team showed their promise throughout the season as they captured three top-five and 12 top-10 finishes and Allgaier finished sixth in the point standings. He was also crowned the Raybestos Rookie of the Year to complete a memorable freshman season in the Nationwide Series.

Allgaier returned to the driver's seat of the No. 12 Verizon Dodge for his second season in NASCAR's top development series in 2010. At Bristol Motor Speedway he would reach victory lane for the first time in his NASCAR Nationwide career. He would go on to collect 8 top-fives, 20 top-10's and 2 pole awards. Allgaier's impressive 4th position in the standings was the best of any of the Nationwide only drivers with NASCAR Sprint Cup regulars rounding out the top 6.

So he could focus on transitioning to the professional levels of the sport, he decided to make the transfer to Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida. The move proved to be successful, as he graduated with honors earning his Bachelors in Business Administration and continued his winning ways on the racetrack.

Scott currently splits his time between St. Augustine, FL and Davidson, NC. Although extremely self-driven and an intense competitor, Scott manages to enjoy his limited free time to the fullest. When not racing he enjoys surfing, wakeboarding, fishing, basketball and hanging out with his friends and family.

Two-time Venezuelan driving champion Nelson Canache is starting to click in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards.  Entering the 2012 ARCA season Canache had virtually no oval track experience and relied heavily on his driving instinct to navigate around his new surroundings.

Canache’s improvement can easily be associated with becoming more familiar with his team and getting more seat time, but a lot of his recent success can be attributed to the guidance he’s receiving off the track from former NASCAR Nationwide and Venturini team driver, Sean Caisse.
