AJ Allmendinger will start Sunday’s 400 almost exactly where he has started the last four events. He lines up 15th based on Friday’s practice times.

Allmendinger has started between 13th and 18th in his most recent four Chicagoland Speedway attempts. His best race result was a 14th in 2010, but his last three efforts have been in the 20s. The No. 47 is predicted to finish about 25th.

AJ Allmendinger qualified 21st for the Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond International Raceway and if the past is any indication, that suggests a top-15 finish is pretty much out of reach.

This is the seventh time in his Richmond career that he qualified outside the top 20 and he earned only two top-15s and no top-10s after doing so.

Already an overwhelming favorite at Watkins Glen International, AJ Allmendinger posted a lap of 127.839 mph in the final qualification session to win the pole for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen.

As strong as he has been on road courses, this is his first pole on at Watkins Glen. Last year he won this race from sixth and should race among the top five all day. Ultimately strategy will play a role, but ‘Dinger is in a great position entering the race. Allmendinger also won the pole this June at Sonoma Raceway, but suffered a fuel pickup problem to finish 37th.

AJ Allmendinger posted the second fastest lap in the first practice session for the Cheez-it 355k at the Glen. His top speed of 126.901 was 0.091 seconds slower than Clint Bowyer.

Allmendinger has been considered one of the favorite since the week started and this speed confirms those predictions. Look for him to challenge for the pole on Saturday and race among the top five as long as his strategy plays out.

AJ Allmendinger finished seventh in the Windows 10 400 at Pocono Raceway, which gives him momentum at a critical time. Next week the series rolls into Watkins Glen, where ‘Dinger is the defending winner.

Allmendinger will need to win to earn an invitation to the Chase and everyone knows this is his best opportunity. He will be popular next week even after a disappointing Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway in June.

If the past eight races on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks are any indication, AJ Allmendinger should improve from his grid position. He has advanced through the field in every event he started on this course type since last fall’s Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas.

His best finish and greatest advancement came at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this spring when he climbed from 22nd to sixth. That earned a lot of place differential points in games that award them.
Jul 8 - 8:25 PM

AJ Allmendinger has suffered crash damage in 10 of the 12 races he started at Daytona International Speedway during his career, including his last five consecutively.

Allmendinger managed to stay on the lead lap in this year’s Daytona 500 to finish 20th, but he was not as lucky last summer with a 43rd-place result following a lap-19 crash. His odds of earning another top-20 are only 50/50.
Jul 3 - 12:32 PM

AJ Allmendinger posted a lap of 96.310 mph in the second and final round of qualification for the Toyota / Save Mart 350k. He will lead the field to green on Sunday from the pole.

Allmendinger started the weekend complaining that his car felt "heavy" in the first practice session. He improved in final practice to hit fantasy radar screens, and his pole-winning run was the icing on the cake. Allmendinger remains one of this week’s favorites.

AJ Allmendinger complained that his car was "heavy" early in the first session for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway, but the crew apparently found a setup to lighten him up. He ended the practice second on the speed chart with a speed of 95.318 mph.

All objections are withdrawn about starting Allmendinger on this technical track. If he continues to show speed the rest of the weekend, he will be one of the favorites.

AJ Allmendinger was not comfortable with his car during the first hour of practice for the Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway. Halfway through that session, he sat 16th on the speed chart with a lap of 93.706, which was 8/10ths of a mile slower than Kurt Busch.

Allmendinger was considered a solid dark horse based on last year’s Watkins Glen International victory. These two tracks are significantly different, however, and Sonoma is a much more technical course. Fantasy owners should proceed with caution.

A comparison of AJ Allmendinger’s first seven races to his last eight shows that he has been losing momentum. He earned two top-10s and had an average finish of 21.1 in his first seven attempts compared to no top-10s and an average of 24.0 in the last eight.

Allmendinger has a chance to reverse that fortune in next week’s Toyota / Save Mart 350 at Sonoma Raceway and the upcoming Watkins Glen International affair later this summer. One of those races could place him in the Chase.
Jun 19 - 8:28 PM

For the Axalta We Paint Winners 400, AJ Allmendinger posted his best qualification effort in the past five races. He narrowly missed advancing into the second round of qualification and starts the race 26th.

This improvement is welcome, but Allmendinger was much stronger at Pocono Raceway last year. He started 21st in June and 20th in August. A 21st in the Axalta 400 as his best finish.
Jun 6 - 10:06 AM

AJ Allmendinger qualified 29th for the FedEx 400 at Dover International Speedway and that has been his sweet spot in recent weeks. This is the fourth consecutive race in which he has started between 29th and 31st.

Fantasy owners have even better news in regard to Allmendinger because he has finished better than he started in each of the past three races—often by a wide margin. He climbed to 17th at Talladega from 31st and 14th at Kansas Speedway from 29th.
May 30 - 8:23 AM

AJ Allmendinger made two runs in the first 30 minutes of the morning practice session for the Coke 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and almost hit the wall both times. His car was visibly loose.

Allmendinger was not able to get the car under him and sat 33rd on the fastest lap chart at the time. He qualified 30th and should be expected to finish in that same range unless they find something in final practice.
