AJ Allmendinger earned his ninth top-10 finish of the season when he crossed the finish line eighth at Homestead-Miami Speedway Sunday evening in the No. 47 Kroger/Clorox Chevrolet SS.
“This evening at Homestead-Miami Speedway is just a product of hard work," Allmendinger said. "When the green flag dropped, the car wouldn’t turn and we just kind of fought that all night. This tire is a tire that we’ve definitely struggled on. We've got to keep doing our homework on it. We had a pit road penalty, but we fought back there and kept doing the right things. I could see the No. 21 (Ryan Blaney) was the guy we were actually racing to finish in the top-20 in points and he was having trouble. So, I was just trying to be smart. We kept getting the wave around and kept getting our laps back, and missed the big wreck. Heck, I don’t know how we finished eighth, but it's a good finish."
"We never gave up," crew chief Randall Burnett said. "Our goal was to finish ahead of the No. 21 (Ryan Blaney) so we could gain a spot in the points and fortunately we were able to do that tonight. I'm proud of all the guys and proud of AJ for never giving up."
