We’ve been working hard to get better each week, so hopefully we can have another solid finish in the No. 10 Carnomaly Chevy.”

“As we all went to Atlanta to run the reconfiguration for the first time back in the spring, all drivers and teams were presented with a challenge that none of us had really ever been faced with before. Very quickly, we all identified what type of racing it was going to be and had fast Kaulig Chevys. Now as we approach it for the second time, in the heat of the summer, we are kind of being presented with a different challenge and list of unknowns. Everyone at Kaulig Racing is continuing to work their tails off to try to move our program in the right direction. We are up for the challenge and ready to go have some fun in Hot-Lanta!”

– Daniel Hemric on Atlanta Motor Speedway

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Action Industries Chevrolet

  • AJ Allmendinger has a win in four-consecutive NXS seasons
  • Allmendinger has earned multiple wins in three-consecutive NXS seasons
  • Allmendinger has an average finish of 6.5, the best of any full-time NXS driver in 2022
  • Allmendinger has 14 top-10 finishes, the most of any full-time NXS driver
  • Allmendinger has one win, three top fives and has led 80 laps at Atlanta Motor Speedway

“The last time we went to Atlanta it was definitely an interesting race with the new reconfiguration. There was a lot of pack racing. I felt like our cars actually handled really well there, and we had pretty good speed to give ourselves a chance to win. I think handling is going to be especially important with all the heat that we’re going to have there. The track definitely got slick when it was hotter the last time. Some of it is a bit of the luck of the draw when the wrecks happen and staying out of it. Hopefully we can stay up front all day and keep ourselves clean and give ourselves a chance at winning the race.”

– AJ Allmendinger on Atlanta Motor Speedway
