AJ Allmendinger did not get the win that his fans hoped for, but he managed to earn his fifth top-10 of the season with a ninth in the I Love New York 355 at Watkins Glen International.

Three of these top-10s have come in the last six weeks of competition, so this organization is slowly turning their fortune around. It will take a little while before fantasy players fully trust them, however.

AJ Allmendinger finished 10th in the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which gave JTG-Daugherty Racing a sweep of the top 10. Chris Buescher finished ninth.

This organization needed a good finish before heading into Watkins Glen International in two weeks and if Allmendinger runs well at Pocono Raceway, he could be an even bigger favorite on the road course.

AJ Allmendinger started 27 for the Coke Zero 400 and advanced to the top 10 at Daytona International Speedway. He finished eighth.

Picking dark horses can be difficult, but this week’s Weekend Update highlighted both of the JTG-Daugherty Racing drivers. Allmendinger was followed across the line by Chris Buescher in 10th in one of the best races for dark horses that we have seen all year.

AJ Allmendinger crashed with only one minute remaining in final practice for the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

Allmendinger was only 28th on the grid at the time and undoubtedly searching for speed. He will have to fall to the back of the grid and give up his 25th-place position on the grid.

AJ Allmendinger was running third when he turned the second-place car of Chase Elliott on lap 169 of the Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. By the time the smoke cleared, 17 cars had sustained some damage.

Several top drivers were involved in the crash including Elliott, Matt Kenseth, Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Erik Jones, and Kurt Busch. Some of the cars may be able to continue and limp home through the final 19 laps.

In his last six plate races, AJ Allmendinger has improved in each successive event.

Allmendinger finished 36th at Talladega in the fall 2015 race. He improved to 21st at Daytona the following spring and then cracked the top 15 at Talladega in May. From then until now, he has finished 13th, 10th, and third in his last three plate races.

AJ Allmendinger started 30th and finished sixth in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

That was his third consecutive top-10 on this track and his sixth result of 11th or better in seven attempts with JTG-Daugherty Racing. Allmendinger has been a good value on several occasions this year with a third at Daytona International Speedway and 17th last week at Auto Club Speedway, but he is expected to fall back into the 20s on unrestricted, intermediate speedways.

Four of AJ Allmendinger’s last six attempts at Phoenix International Raceway have ended in either a 16th- or 17th-place result.

That is the majority of the events he started for JTG-Daugherty Racing. His other two efforts netted a 26th- and 24th-place result. The odds are in his favor to finish somewhere in the high-teens. Fantasy players should plan accordingly.

AJ Allmendinger was docked 35 points and crew chief Randall Burnett was suspended for three races after three lug nuts were found to be loose at the end of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.

Ernie Cope will assume the role of crew chief in the interim. The points’ deduction drops Allmendinger from 11th to 34th in the standings, but this is a blow to an organization that was just now starting to show their potential as a two-car operation.

AJ Allmendinger scored three top-15s in 10 races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks last year.

His best efforts were a pair of eighth-place results in Kansas Speedway’s two races. He finished 14th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and had three results just outside the top 15. He should be considered a solid mid-cap pick if he fits the right niche on one’s roster.

AJ Allmendinger finished third in the Daytona 500 after starting the afternoon 38th.

AJ Allmendinger has made six starts at Daytona International Speedway driving the No. 47; four of these ended in the 20s.

Allmendinger had one 20th-place finish and two 21sts. His other 20-something result was 26th, so that is the range in which he is most likely to land again. Last summer, he defined his high water mark, however, with a 13th in the Coke Zero 400.

With a victory in 2014 and a fourth last year, the balance tips in favor of Watkins Glen International as AJ Allmendinger’s best track in terms of three-year averages.

Allmendinger also finished 24th there in 2015 to combine for an average of 9.7, but he had a battery problem that dropped him from contention during a strong run. Allmendinger’s best track that hosts more than one race per year is Martinsville Speedway. He swept the top 10 there last year, finished 11th in one of 2015’s two races, and was ninth in 2014 for an average of 14.3.

AJ Allmendinger ended the 2016 season on a high note with four top-10s in the final six races.

That was nearly half of his total top-10s for the season, but more importantly he was able to string three top-10s together for the first time in his career from Kansas Speedway through Martinsville Speedway in October. His worst finish in the last five races of the season was a 17th and all of his efforts ended on the lead lap.
