Charlotte ROVAL Post-Race Report

AJ Allmendinger Goes Back-to-Back-to-Back at the ROVAL

Drive For the Cure 250

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Hyperice Chevrolet
Start: 14th
Stage 1 Finish: 2nd
Stage 2 Finish: 12th
Finish: 1st

“I knew a caution would come out at the end and that it wouldn’t come easily. It was a fight today! We had to be on defense early worrying about the points. The track was tough to pass on and really slick from all the rain, but our Hyperice Chevy was stupid fast. I can’t thank all the men and women at Kaulig Racing enough for all their hard work and effort. The big picture for us is the championship, but winning three in-a-row at the ROVAL means the world to me.”

– AJ Allmendinger

Justin Haley, No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection Chevrolet
Start: 5th
Stage 1 Finish: 5th
Stage 2 Finish: 2nd
Finish: 4th

“It was a really great day for our No. 11 LeafFilter Gutter Protection team. I’m super proud of all the men and women that put their heart behind each and every car every week. I’m also really happy for AJ (Allmendinger) for winning the ROVAL for the third year in a row. Overall, it was a good weekend for our organization.”

– Justin Haley

Jeb Burton, No. 10 Radiate Next Chevrolet
Start: 7th
Stage 1 Finish: 9th
Stage 2 Finish: 9th
Finish: 13th

“We fought really hard in my first-ever race at the ROVAL. I’m super bummed we didn’t make the next round of the playoffs. We’ve only had one DNF all year, which happened a couple weeks ago in Vegas, that put us in a hole. It’s unfortunate we just missed it by a little. I’m really proud of my guys and everyone at Kaulig Racing. We will go win some races now to finish out the season.”

– Jeb Burton

Bank of America ROVAL 400

AJ Allmendinger, No. 16 Jackpot Party Casino
Start: 33rd
Stage 1 Finish: 2nd
Stage 2 Finish: 18th
Finish: 38th

“We had a really good car today, but we blew a motor in the final stage. It’s unfortunate, because we were running up front, and I think our strategy would have played out in the end to give us a really good shot at it. I just made a mistake trying to pass those guys and shift quickly. I’m proud of Kaulig Racing for building a great No. 16 Jackpot Party Casino Chevy and working hard all day.”

– AJ Allmendinger
