This interview with Justin Allgaier took place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, the same weekend that he finished second in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Sam’s Town 300, just behind his part-time Turner Motorsports teammate Mark Martin. It was a huge weekend for those guys.
What is your favorite word? Rollability. It’s a word that came from trying to figure out how to make the racecars go faster and it just kind of stuck. I don’t know if it’s a word or not.
What is your least favorite word? “Like” because I say it all the time and it drives me nuts and I try to keep myself from saying it.
What turns you on? My wife.
What turns you off? Bad smells.
What sound or noise do you love? I actually like the sound of fire. The cracking and the popping of fire. I’ve always really liked that sound.
What sound or noise do you hate? Ambulances or emergency vehicles. The sirens, I can’t stand sirens.
What is your favorite curse word? I don’t really cuss, that kind of eliminates my favorite curse word. (Me: Do you have something you say in place of a curse word?) I say, “Eff” a lot. It’s kind of odd but that’s my curse word, I guess, if I have one.
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? The graphic arts industry. I started out when I was younger doing my own decals on my racecars and I absolutely love it.
What profession would you not like to do? Anything to do with sewers or sewage. We were actually reading at thing today about how they’re going to turn sewage water into drinking water and that really bothers me. So that would definitely not be a profession I would want to be in.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? Just to say that I did the right thing. I think that would be the most important.
