AJ Allmendinger Quote

“I guess I had so much fun, or maybe the team had enough fun at Bristol, that they brought me back for Atlanta. Once again, no practice and probably starting near the back. Atlanta Motor Speedway, the ATL, is one of my favorite places to race at in the Cup Series. It will be the first time in the Xfinity Series. It’s slick – the racetrack is old. It wears out tires quick. You can run the bottom, you can run the middle, run the top. It’s a place that allows for great racing, a lot of passing, which we’re going to need, because from where I’m going to be starting, we’re going to have to pass a lot of cars. These Kaulig Racing Chevys are fast. I’m so excited and so fortunate – thank you Matt Kaulig, Chris Rice and everyone here at the race team for preparing this race car and giving me another shot. Let’s go!”
