AJ Allmendinger Quote

“I’m back! I’m pumped to be back in the Ellsworth Advisors No. 16 for Kaulig Racing and to be back with my Kaulig Racing family at Bristol. It will be a slight challenge. I haven’t been there in two years, and I’ve never been there in a Xfinity car. No practice, and I’ll probably be starting near the back. I’m a little nervous about it, but overall I couldn’t be more excited that Matt Kaulig and everyone at Kaulig Racing have given me the opportunity to go to Bristol, one of the toughest race tracks in the world, and try to get myself, and my TV body, back into racing shape. We’re ready to go! The Kaulig Racing Chevys have been so fast this year. I can’t wait to work with Justin Haley and Ross Chastain, go to the front, win some races and collect trophies.”
