O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 Post-Race Report

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Hyperice Camaro ZL1 1LE

Start: 34th

1st Stage: 17th

2nd Stage: 9th

Finish: 7th

“We had a really solid day. Our Hyperice Camaro ZL1 1LE was really fast. We were able to drive up from 34th and legitimately get up to the lead there. We knew with our situation we would struggle at times for track position, but the car was so fast. It was really fun to drive. Everyone worked so hard on it, so I really appreciate it. I can’t thank everyone at Kaulig Racing and RCR enough for putting the car together. That was a lot of fun. I wish we could have kept the track position, but to restart in the back with eight laps to go and finish seventh, that’s a great day.”

– AJ Allmendinger
