AJ Allmendinger and his No. 47 BUSH’S Grillin’ Beans Chevrolet SS team capitalized to finish in seventh-place when several cars ran out of fuel coming to the checkered flag during the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway Sunday afternoon.
"That's luck there,"
Allmendinger said about capturing his 38th-career top-10 finish. "We've definitely had a lot of bad luck this season, so it was nice to have some good luck come our way. The car was definitely a little better. We just can’t get that perfect balance around this place right now. It was just tight. We would make little gains and then the track would change on us. I felt like my No. 47 BUSH’S Grillin' Beans Chevrolet SS was sensitive to the sun coming out. Overall, the car was better, but we are not quite there yet. We lost the balance in Happy Hour on Saturday. We couldn’t really work on it until the race. Glad we could leave here with a top-10 finish."
“Pocono Raceway is one of those places where you race backwards,” crew chief Brian Burns said. “We made a commitment to wait to pit until we were in our last fuel window. I think a lot of people came a little early because they were expecting cautions, but we wanted to make sure we were good to the end. It went green all the way and we benefited from a lot of people taking a riskier strategy. It definitely paid off for us. I’m proud of everybody and what they did this weekend.”
“Brian Burns made a good call and stuck to his guns and got us a top-10,” JTG Daugherty Racing owner Tad Geschickter. “We had a better car here than we did here six weeks ago. We have just to keep improving as a team.”
