Loudon Statistics

AJ’s statistics at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway don’t look too great. His average start is 28th, and his average finish is a dismal 38th. But as always, the numbers don’t necessarily tell how strong his cars have been. In the June 2008 race, AJ earned a top 10 starting spot and ran as high as 6th position before losing an oil clamp and erupting into a ball of fire.

In September of 2008, the starting grid was set by owner’s points because of rain. AJ worked his way from a 34th place starting spot up to 20th position. But contact with Michael McDowell sent the #84 Red Bull car into the wall and dropped him to a final finishing spot of 38th.

Despite the numbers, spirits are high for the #44 Richard Petty Motorsports team. Coming off of a strong run at Infineon Raceway, the Berlin City Auto Group crew looks to bring home another top 10 finish this weekend. They are bringing a re-vamped race car to the Magic Mile in Loudon, a flat paperclip shaped track. Oh, and the last time they were at a flat paperclip shaped track (Martinsville) AJ finished 9th.
