AJ Allmendinger started sixth and was credited with a 37th-place finish after something failed sending his No. 47 Harris Teeter / Stouffer's / Fit Kitchen Chevrolet SS hard into the wall Sunday afternoon at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
“I’m alright, but that was definitely a hard hit when you start from the bottom and get to the top - - not the way you ever want to hit," Allmendinger said. "I’m not sure what happened. First off, I can’t thank all my guys enough and our sponsors. We had Harris Teeter on the race car, Stouffer’s, Fit Kitchen - - everybody that is a part of this. We built a brand-new race car and it’s our first one since really the beginning of the year. It had a lot of speed in it.
"There was something weird that started to happen around the first third of the race to where I didn’t like what was happening with the front end of the car," Allmendinger continued. "I couldn’t tell if it was just rubber build up or anything like that, but we kept having tire problems with 15 laps to go in the run. We had one tire start to delaminate and the same thing right there, I started feeling something go again and I don’t know if the tire went or something broke, but something was definitely starting to get messed up in the front of the car and was costing us speed. We had a lot of speed early in the race (ran in top five), probably the most speed we have had all year at a 1.5-mile early in the race. There is something to be positive about, but it's just not the way we wanted to end it.”
