The Richard Petty Motorsports' No. 44 Dodge pit crew owns a distinction few if any pit crews will achieve in 2009. The crew earned the Tissot Pit Crew Award-- its car spending the least amount of time on pit lane--in the Daytona 500 with driver Reed Sorenson and the No. 43 Dodge. The crew repeated the feat Sunday night, but this time with AJ Allmendinger on the No. 44 Dodge. In addition the crew finished second in the Sprint Pit Crew Challenge competition in May.
Allmendinger and his crew hope for even greater rewards Saturday night at Richmond Intl. Raceway where Allmendinger will drive the No. 44 Paralyzed Veterans of America Dodge for the Mike Shiplett-led team.
* Allmendinger will join Richard Petty and Reed Sorenson for the NASCAR Foundation track walk at Noon on Saturday at Richmond. Proceeds go to the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
* Allmendinger will sign autographs at his merchandise hauler at 3:55 p.m. on Saturday at Richmond.
