A crowd gathered outside international agribusiness giant Brandt's Springfield headquarters Thursday to see Nascar legend Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Riverton native Justain Allgaier of the Xfinity Series. Earnhardt told the crowd of race fans why Justin is a great fit for his "Jr Motorsports" team and why Brandt is a great fit for him as a sponsor.
Earnhardt had a stay in school message and it was no cliche. His father, the legendary Intimidator Dale Earnhardt Jr dropped out of school before high school and didn't want his son to follow in his footsteps.
Allgaier and Earnhardt were joined by two-time Brazilian Porsche series champ Miguel Paludo, whose racecar is also sponsored by Brandt.
