Due to race number 15 being shortened by inclement weather, AJ Allmendinger was forced to settle for a 23rd-place finish behind the wheel of the No. 47 Kroger®/Hungry Jack® Chevrolet SS in the Quicken Loans 400 where only 138 laps of 200 were completed Sunday afternoon.
"We were loose kind of all weekend, Saturday and Sunday especially,” Allmendinger said. “I thought we were making gains on it because we definitely got better. We just can’t get any luck right now on our side and that’s the way it goes sometimes. It would have been nice to get back out there, but the damage was done with how many cars were a lap down and having to race for the Lucky Dog - - just after we had pitted the caution flag flew. This track is tough on tires and you have a lot of guys staying out for track position.”
“I think if you take Saturday and Sunday, our communication was a lot better,” Allmendinger said. “It was probably the best talk and debrief that we have had. The frustration is still there because it is not where we want to be. We are ready for an off week. Hopefully, we can get our Kentucky (Speedway) car ready, which is our next big racetrack if you take out Sonoma (Raceway) and Daytona (International Speedway). With all the stuff that we have learned recently and today, I feel like we have kind of done a full circle trying different setups and back to where we were at the beginning of the year was definitely better. We have a ways to go. I thought we could have had a better result Sunday.”
“It was great to spend time with everyone from Kroger® and Hungry Jack® and to have them on our car at Michigan International Speedway,” Allmendinger said. “We’re grateful for their support. We are looking forward to seeing everyone again soon.”
