AJ Allmendinger at Fan Fest at Kroger Marketplace in Chester on September 8th

Richmond, Va. (September 7, 2016) Richmond race fans are invited to Kroger Fan Fest at the Kroger Marketplace in Chester on Thursday, September 8 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. The free event will include an appearance from AJ Allmendinger along with interactive exhibits, autograph signing, photo opportunities with fans and other family fun attractions.
At Fan Fest, Allmendinger, who currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, driving the No. 47 Kroger/SCOTT Products Chevrolet SS, will also attend a private Big Brothers Big Sisters event at the store for local Big Brothers Big Sisters matches to enjoy together.

“It’s important to us to share our partnership with AJ with the whole community," said Allison McGee with Kroger Mid-Atlantic. "With Fan Fest everyone gets a chance to come out to meet AJ and have fun. We chose Big Brothers Big Sisters as our nonprofit partner to thank its volunteers for their time spent enriching the children’s lives and also to give the kids an experience they’ll remember.”

Allmendinger will appear at the Kroger store located at 10800 Iron Bridge Rd, Chester, VA 23831 on Thursday, September 8 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. where he will be available to meet fans and sign autographs.
