AJ Allmendinger put his heart into racing JTG Daugherty Racing's No. 47 Kroger/Kingsford Chevrolet SS to a fourth-place finish in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Cheez-It 355 at Watkins Glen International Sunday afternoon.
"I can’t thank everybody enough at Kroger, Kingsford and all of our partners for their support and it was awesome to see the sold-out crowd we had at Watkins Glen," Allmendinger said. "We had a strong No. 47 Kroger/Kingsford Chevy thanks to my guys back at the shop and the road crew. Everyone did a great job and I'm thankful for all the hard work they put in each and every week/weekend. We just came up a little short today. We had a speeding penalty earlier in the race, but raced our way back up through the field into the top five.
"I just tried to fight back and I was just trying to get everything I could out of it," Allmendinger continued. "I fought so hard to get it back and I fought hard on the restarts. I was aggressive, and I was going to be okay with that until I cost Kyle (Larson) a good finish at the end and I can't say sorry enough because I didn't mean to spin him out. We'll move on to Bristol Motor Speedway in a couple weeks. We ran really well there and we're all looking forward to going back after the off weekend."
