The pair appeared last year for this event and both Stremme and Allgaier are looking forward to going door-to-door with the speedway’s regular Swan Lake UMP Modified drivers.
“I’m really excited about coming back to the Plymouth Speedway for another race,” said Allgaier. “The city of Plymouth holds a special meaning to my family and I can’t wait to get back and race in front of the great fans that come and support the track.”
Allgaier drives the No. 51 Brandt Chevrolet in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for the Harry Scott Motorsports team. He is one of eight rookies in the field this season.
David Stremme hails from South Bend and is excited to get back to his racing roots.
“I’ve been busy working on my car,” laughed Stremme. “I’m looking forward to seeing the improvements done at the track. It keeps getting better and better. We’ll try to run up front as much as we can. I’ve got a good car. It’ll be fun.”
Who will bring home the trophy? Will it be a NASCAR driver, last year’s winner Frank Marshall, current points leader Jamie Lomax or will there be a new face on top of the podium?
The only way to find out is to attend the race on Saturday at 7 p.m. Gates open at 4 p.m. ET and pit passes are available for $30.
