AJ Allmendinger and the JTG Daugherty Racing team started and finished 21st at Pocono Raceway in the Pocono 400 with the No. 47 Clorox Chevrolet SS.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the 14th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event on Sunday. Brad Keselowski finished second, Kurt Busch was third, Denny Hamlin was fourth and Kyle Larson rounded out the top-five.
Allmendinger is currently 20th (360) in the driver points standings led by Jeff Gordon (498).
“We qualified 21st and never really had the track position we needed all day,” crew chief Brian Burns said. “We really didn’t have a chance to get into the top 15 to see how the car was. The thing about Pocono Raceway is that traffic is killer there. The last caution was unfortunate because AJ was about to break into the top-15. If he wouldn’t have got damage from another car, he probably would have raced into the top 15 near the end and pulled off a better finish. All and all, we have to work more on our aero package.”
“I got loose â€“ aero-loose,” AJ Allmendinger said. “We need to work on our aero package. When somebody gets on the outside of me, it’s bad. Greg Biffle didn’t do anything wrong and he left me a whole car width, but it’s like I had a rope tied to my bumper and I was jerked around. We might have salvaged a better finish without that happening. We just have to run better. My guys fought so hard Sunday and did everything they could to make the car better. Sometimes when you’re off, you’re just off. We threw a lot of things at the No. 47 Clorox Chevrolet SS and got what we could out of it."
“We will continue to learn from each race and turn our focus to Michigan International Speedway,” Allmendinger said. “We are looking forward to that one because we have a brand new car to take.”
