New Hampshire Motor Speedway Post-Race Report

Ambetter 301

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Gold Fish Casino Slots Camaro ZL1

Start: 20th

Stage 1 Finish: 15th

Stage 2 Finish: 15th

Finish: 16th

“New Hampshire can be such a difficult track, and that was definitely the case today in our No. 16 Gold Fish Casino Slots Camaro. We struggled with being a little too tight — that was probably my biggest issue, but I felt like it would start to come to me on the longer runs. In the end, we were able to hang on, just shy of a top 15.”

Justin Haley, No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro ZL1

Start: 25th

Stage 1 Finish: 29th

Stage 2 Finish: 24th

Finish: 20th

We battled some handling issues for the first part of the race that just really affected the brakes of our No. 31 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Camaro. We spent some time on pit road trying to figure it out, and thankfully we were able to make some adjustments and race for the lucky dog to gain back some spots. It was a tough day for our No. 31 team, but we will take a top 20.

Crayon 200

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Action Industries Chevrolet

Start: 7th

Stage 1 Finish: 3rd

Stage 2 Finish: 4th

Finish: 20th

“New Hampshire has not been Kaulig Racing’s best track in the past. Although the end results don’t show it, I think we made gains in the right direction all weekend. Our No. 16 Action Industries team made some good adjustments on pit road, and we had a solid points day. Unfortunately, I had some contact with another car and had some damage that was causing a tire rub. We had to pit to fix it and just lost a couple laps. We will take the positives from the day and move on.”

Daniel Hemric, No. 11 AG1 Chevrolet

Start: 2nd

Stage 1 Finish: 10th

Stage 2 Finish: 6th

Finish: 35th

“Today was just sort of the result of short-track racing. I was in the middle of three wide at one point and had some contact that eventually made my left rear tire go down. I tried to nurse it as long as possible, but I wheel hopped and that was it. All the men and women at Kaulig Racing have been hustling their tails off all year to make us better and better, and we saw glimpses of that with qualifying second. Unfortunately, it was an early end to the day in our No. 11 AG1 Chevy.”

Landon Cassill, No. 10 Carnomaly Chevrolet

Start: 5th

Stage 1 Finish: 8th

Stage 2 Finish: 2nd

Finish: 37th

“Despite the end result, our No. 10 Carnomaly Chevy felt really good today. I just needed some more rubber on the tires at the end. We were able to stay clean all day – usually the best way to stay out of trouble is to be in the top five, so to be able to run up there all day was a positive for us.”
