AJ Allmendinger finished 17th with his No. 47 Kroger / DiGiorno / Hot Pockets Chevrolet SS during the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 400 at Chicagoland Speedway Sunday afternoon.
“Before we debrief about the race, I want to thank our partners because it was a big week leading into the Cup race at Chicagoland Speedway,” Allmendinger said. “We kicked it off with a visit to Tyson’s Chicago headquarters on Thursday and got to meet a lot of their employees. Then on Sunday, we visited the SCOTT Products display in Chicagoland Speedway’s midway where we had an autograph session for fans. We had a lot of activation going on and had so many sponsors that came out to Chicagoland Speedway to cheer us on from Kroger, Nestlé, Tyson, BUSH'S Beans and SCOTT Products. We look forward to seeing more folks in the coming weeks and we thank everyone for being a big part of the team.”
"During the race, we were searching for a good balance with the mechanical grip," Allmendinger said. "We also had some good fortune. We were about to pit and the caution came out at the right time and I was able to duck back onto the racetrack. That gave us good track position. We'll keep doing our homework and working hard to find what we may be missing. I know my guys are working hard on aerodynamics and so much more. We maximized our day as best as we could and will keep after it."
