AJ Allmendinger Quote

“We’re going to do this again! Talladega, Ellsworth Advisors on the racecar. We’ve had fast Chevys from Kaulig Racing. More important, this check for $100,000. We won the Dash 4 Cash at Homestead. We’ve got two more opportunities with myself and Ross Chastain. We’re going to go to Talladega with three, fast Kaulig Racing Chevys up front and try to do that one-two-three thing again.”
