An early race accident followed by two flat tires relegated AJ Allmendinger to a 36th-place finish after starting 15th with the No. 47 FOOD 4 LESS / SCOTT Products Chevrolet SS in the MyAfibRisk.com 400 at Chicagoland Speedway Sunday afternoon.
“The No. 11 car (Denny Hamlin) was faster than me and he was diving it in early and got me,” Allmendinger said. “The accident caused us to have to pit for fresh tires. After that, we were just really slow. Then the No. 9 car (Sam Hornish Jr.) slid up into me and caught me in the left rear and it flattened the tire. We thought the fender was good enough. I left pit road and soon after, it just cut the tire back down again. From there, we had the same challenges we’ve had in the past.”
“We had bad luck from the very start of the race,” crew chief Brian Burns. “We started 15th and ended up getting spun around by the No. 11 car at the beginning which forced to pit for fresh tires. We lost a lot of track position from that. It really put us back in the field. Then there was an incident with the No. 9 car that caused damage to our FOOD 4 LESS / SCOTT Products Chevrolet SS, which cut down a tire and we had to pit under green for tires. We went back out on the track and not long after we ended up having another flat tire.”
