Justin Allgaier will drive the No. 51 BRANDT Chevrolet SS during the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Phoenix Racing announced Tuesday in a press release. Allgaier, who finished fifth in the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series championship points, will also compete for NASCAR Rookie of the Year.

The first official races for the NASCAR drivers will be at Daytona International Speedway during Budweiser Speedweeks with several events leading up to the Feb. 23 Daytona 500.

Allgaier tested the car during Preseason Thunder at Daytona International Speedway earlier in January.

"Justin has worked extremely hard to get to this level and he is ready to take the next step," said team owner Harry Scott Jr. "Working with competition director and crew chief Steve Addington, I think the No. 51 can turn some heads this year."

Addington worked at Stewart-Haas Racing the past two seasons before joining Phoenix Racing.

"This is an opportunity of a lifetime and I intend to make the most of it," said Allgaier in a team press release. "I am very grateful to Harry Scott and BRANDT for having faith in me to compete against the best drivers in the world."
