No. 47 Kroger/BUSH'S Beans Chevrolet SS driver AJ Allmendinger finished 25th on the lead lap of the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway Sunday afternoon. Allmendinger is currently 17th (one point out of 16th) in the driver points standings after completing race number nine of the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
“When we started the race with the No. 47 Kroger/BUSH'S Beans Chevy we knew we were not close to how we were in practice on Saturday (eighth),” Allmendinger said. “We were not expecting that. I mean I was a little nervous about rear grip after practice. I thought we got a hold on it, but for some reason we didn’t. It was sliding around, sideways and had no forward drive. I was just hanging on to it. The guys worked really hard and made a lot of adjustments. It was just a long day for everyone. We'll learn from it and move on to Talladega Superspeedway.”
“We had a tough day with the No. 47 Kroger/BUSH’S Beans Chevrolet SS,” crew chief Randall Burnett said. “We were pretty good in practice yesterday. We made a few adjustments and obviously didn’t do the right things before we got in the race. We just fought - loose - all day long. We will definitely go back and look at what we did. We will make it better for the next time we come here and learn from our mistakes.”
