AJ Allmendinger finished 17th with his No. 47 BUSH'S Chili Beans Chevrolet SS in the rain-shortened AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway Sunday night.
“With what we were trying to fight with the No. 47 BUSH'S Chili Beans Chevy during the day, we probably over adjusted for the night conditions," Allmendinger said. "There's nothing you can do about that, but we started the race really tight. My guys did a good job with all the adjustments they made to get it back in the ballpark. There was one run in particular that I thought we were really awesome. I thought we had something to get back in the top 10, but could never get back to it.
"This place confuses me for sure," Allmendinger said. "I felt like I needed a little bit more rear grip, but if we tried that, we got way too tight. When we got tight, I was really slow and unhappy with it. We would free it back up and I would have to kind of hang on to it. It was faster. For how we have been here in the past, tonight's run was way better. I’ve got to still do my homework going into next year about this place and figure it out. My guys fought hard and made the most out of the car. We salvaged decent points for the cars we are racing around. I think we had a top 15 car and that was something that we said if we would have finished in the top 15 here we would have been happy. Having a top 15 car here, it’s okay. It’s not exactly what we wanted, but it’s better than we’ve been. It's progress.”
