Tennessee Lottery 250 Post-Race Report

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Barger Precast / Hyperice Chevrolet

Start: 5th

Stage 1 Finish: 7th

Stage 2 Finish: 12th

Finish: 5th

“We fought loose all day. Everyone was trying to find the right setup, and then we went back the other way. It was just a fundamental struggle that we were having there. We fought hard running 7th or 8th, and then we had a couple good restarts and missed a big wreck at the end. Overall, I think we maximized the day with a good finish. We will keep working to be better.”

– AJ Allmendinger

Jeb Burton, No. 10 Nutrien Ag Solutions Chevrolet

Start: 6th

Stage 1 Finish: 8th

Stage 2 Finish: 16th

Finish: 7th

“Overall, I think we had a good day at Nashville. We qualified in the Top-10 and were able to overcome some handling issues, and I think we were able to learn a lot. I’m glad we could get a good finish for everyone at Nutrien Ag Solutions at a really big race for them.”

Justin Haley, No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet

Start: 12th

Stage 1 Finish: 12th

Stage 2 Finish: 9th

Finish: 19th

“We struggled with being really loose, just like my teammates all day. The car felt totally different than it did in practice the day before, and we just couldn’t quite find the right balance in our No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevy. We would have finished in the Top 10, but got caught in some mess at the end. It’s unfortunate, but it was a great learning experience. I really enjoyed this track, and I can’t wait to come back.”

– Justin Haley
