AJ ALLMENDINGER – No. 43 AdvoCare Ford Fusion
“That’s Martinsville. It was a really good car. I think we just needed something small to win the race, but the car was so good. It was really good. I was proud of all the guys. We’ve got to work on our pit stops a little bit because we kept losing a couple of spots, but what really hurt us was I got put three-wide on the outside and got into Juan and that shoved the fender over the tire and we got a yellow, and from there on back we were at the back of the pack and everybody is just gouging back there. Doug gave me a great motor and everybody at the engine shop. The car was good and that’s all you can say."
A VERY PHYSICAL RACE TODAY. WHY? “It was unbelievable. It was insane. That’s the way NASCAR is now. Everybody is desperate. We’ve got to fight for everything we can get out there. Sponsors, points, money, etc., so everybody is trying to get everything. It’s the end of the year. It just seems like if it’s just me, but it just seems like this year is tiring. Everybody is tired and you put that combination together at a place like Martinsville and things are gonna happen.”
