AJ Allmendinger Quote

“Here we go! I feel refreshed – I got my weekend off. My TV body needed a break after three weeks of working. We’re getting ready for Indy, a historic Xfinity race on the road course for the first time. I’m pumped for it. We’ve got Digital Ally Body Cameras back on the racecar. Last time we them on the car, we pulled her into victory lane. I’m looking forward to a double header with IndyCar on Saturday. It’s all going to be on NBC and NBC Sports. I will be starting at the back again and will have to drive to the front.”
