AJ Allmendinger posted his 11th top-15 finish of the season in the No. 47 Kroger/SCOTT Products when he crossed the finish line 15th at Michigan International Speedway Sunday afternoon.
“Today was the best we have been here for sure at Michigan International Speedway and I'd like to thank Kroger, SCOTT Products and all our brands for all their support in helping make us better as a team," Allmendinger said. "We made a lot of gains and our car on a long run was really good. We could just never get going on the restarts. I was trying to figure out where I needed to run to get the most out of the day. That last caution hurt us a lot because I didn’t get a good restart.
"I didn’t get to the outside quick enough and then we were just too loose there," Allmendinger continued. "I still should have gotten to the top earlier that I did, but I was trying to see what was going to happen with the cars checking up ahead of me and I didn’t get to the outside quick enough. I really wish we could have got more spots there because we deserved better than a 15th-place finish today. We were better than that for sure. We learned a lot today because we haven’t been close to being 15th here in three years. So, that's a positive and something to really build on. It’s definitely a big gain there. Overall, I'm happy with our progress, but just in the short-term I'm disappointed with the finish.”
