I’ve liked Justin Allgaier since his ARCA days, and when he won his first ever NASCAR race in Saturday’s Nationwide event at Bristol, I was absolutely stoked for the kid. But when I heard what he had to say in his Victory Lane celebration, my opinion of the kid was solidified.

I wish more NASCAR drivers, and athletes in general, could be like Allgaier. Keep the faith, Justin! You’ve got a bright future ahead of you if you do. I truly believe that.
