AJ Allmendinger Quote

“It’s race week time. It seems like it’s been forever. I miss my Kaulig Racing team – all the men and women. Talladega! The last time we were there, we had that team hug, cuddle type of thing going on on the front straightaway with my teammates, so I miss that. I’m ready to get back in that No. 16 Chevy. We know we are going to have fast Kaulig Racing Chevys – we always do at the superspeedways. Justin Haley took it down last time there. This time, hopefully it’s my turn, Ross’ turn, or Justin’s turn. No matter what, that Kaulig Racing train is going to the front. Those cars are making it to the next round. We’re going to celebrate again, and let everyone know we are one team, one family. Domination. Let’s make this happen!”
