“We’re just not fast enough right now,” Allmendinger said. “For some reason, we can’t get the front-ends to work. We fought tight most of the day in our SCOTT Products Chevrolet SS, which hurts the rear tires. We made improvements throughout the course of the day, it just wasn’t really enough to be that competitive. Got some work to do.
"The guys did a good job on the new car," Allmendinger continued. "We showed speed in qualifying and it's the best we have qualified. We just have to get a little bit better on the front-ends. It’s nice to finish a race finally, but I'm not going to be happy with 13th.”
"We’ve had a top-15 car all year," JTG Daugherty Racing team owner Tad Geschickter said. "We’ve had some engine failures and some bad luck that has prevented us from showing that. I think AJ drove a great race. I thought we would be a little bit better than that based on practice. The track changed and we fought hard all day and kept improving the car. He said it was the best at the end. So, the team never gave up and a top-15 is good. It’s what we deserved. We need to just keep getting the finishes we deserve and it will all be good.”
