"The track is pretty line-sensitive so you have to time your passes well, but it also usually comes down to fuel mileage," said Allgaier. "It's going to be a great race and Las Vegas always puts on a good show, and I don't think this weekend is going to be any different."
If it sounds like he's excited about the upcoming race, he has a good reason for that. After the first two races of the season, Allgaier heads to Phoenix tied for the points lead with Sam Hornish Jr. Hornish holds the tiebreaker due to his second-place finish in the season-opening DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona.
With seventh-place and third-place finishes at Daytona and Phoenix, respectively, Allgaier looks to continue his hot streak at Las Vegas and break away from Hornish and the rest of the NASCAR Nationwide drivers in the standings.
Whether or not Allgaier wins on Saturday, it's a safe bet he'll be near the front of the pack, barring any accidents.
