“We had a bad vibration in the No. 47 Kroger/Hungry Jack Chevrolet SS, which made it hard for me to just even see straight," Allmendinger said. "I don’t know if it was because of that or what, but once everybody got single file I had no speed in the car.  I was just doing all I could to hang in the draft.  There just was not a lot of speed. I'm not sure what happened when they started crashing, I just tried to avoid it the best I could. We almost got through the race completely clean, which would have helped the result, but it definitely could have been a lot worse. We could be on the hook right now coming back to the garage. The positive is that the car rolls and we're leaving Talladega with a top-20 finish. Sometimes that's all you can you can ask for here. It was a rough long day.”

"All and all, just to make it through a superspeedway race with a top-20 is a positive thing," crew chief Brian Burns said. "It's a crap shoot. We would have liked to run up front and get aggressive at a place like Talladega, but you also have to approach it differently with the high likelihood for the big wrecks. We're glad to be moving on to a track like Kansas Speedway where we ran good at last year."
