Race: Coca-Cola 600
Date/Time: Sunday, May 24, 6 PM ET
“It was a tough night,” Allmendinger said. “I pancaked the wall when the car got really tight on a long green flag run and later there was also some debris on the front of the grill that forced us to pit under green because the engine got really hot. We lost some laps because of that and we were not able to recover with our No. 47 SCOTT Products Chevrolet SS. We wish we would have had a better result for SCOTT Products and all of our partners on board - House-Autry, Kroger, Hungry Jack, Better Than Bouillon, Clorox, Kingsford, Charter Spectrum, Shore Lunch, BUSH'S Beans, and Freightliner. We're grateful for your support and will shift our focus to Dover International Speedway, which is a track that I have had some success at in the past.”
“When the Coca-Cola 600 started, we thought we had a solid night going and AJ was doing a good job driving up through the field,” crew chief Brian Burns said. “As the sun set and the track changed, the No. 47 SCOTT Products Chevrolet SS got tight. We had a long green flag run as the track changed and the car got really tight and he hit the wall. We thought we could rebound from that, but then we got something on the grill and the engine was getting hot. So, we were forced to pit under green and that really set us back. We had that happen along with some damage to the car. It is the way it turned out unfortunately. We had to pit under green when we got something on the grill. We were never able to get back on the lead lap. This weekend, we are focused on Dover where we were able to participate in a Goodyear tire test recently. We decided to bring a better car for the race weekend. We have got some new cars coming down the pipeline with design improvements that we are looking forward to racing."
