AJ Allmendinger finished eighth in the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway after starting 25th.

A top-10 made Allmendinger one of the best dark horses of the afternoon, but it should not have been overly surprising. This is his fourth top-10 in the past five races at Martinsville and he should be bookmarked for a start on the bullring in the fall.

AJ Allmendinger posted the sixth-fastest single lap in Happy Hour practice for the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway with a speed of 94.746 mph.

For all his speed, however, Allmendinger complained about tire wear on his right front during long runs. The tire was chattering in the corners and that could cause him trouble on long runs.

AJ Allmendinger topped the leaderboard early in terms of single, fastest laps and held on to land seventh on the chart by the time Saturday morning practice for the Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway was in the books.

Allmendinger’s fastest lap was 183.505 mph and it marks him as one of the dark horses to watch this week. His teammate Chris Buescher advanced to the top 12 in qualification, so there is some speed in the JTG-Daugherty Racing Chevrolets.

In his last 18 races (a rolling half season), AJ Allmendinger has earned only two top-10s and accumulated an average of 23.2. Both top-10s came on wild card tracks.

We expected ‘Dinger to struggle some when the JTG-Daugherty Racing operation expanded to two cars, but he should be contending for more top-15s. His pair of top-10s came on the road course of Watkins Glen International and the superspeedway of Daytona International Speedway with just one other top-15 at Homestead-Miami Speedway last fall. Evaluate him only for the next few weeks.

AJ Allmendinger got loose on lap 33 of the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and tagged the wall.

Allmendinger was running 33rd at the time and lost even more distance on the track after flattening the right rear of his car.
Mar 4 - 4:09 PM

AJ Allmendinger has gotten progressively worse in his last three starts at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

In 2015, Allmendinger finished sixth at Vegas. He was a decent value in 2016 with a 14th, but fell to 25th last year. Considering that he finished only 29th at Atlanta Motor Speedway in last week’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, the No. 47 is probably best left in the garage for the Pennzoil 400.
Feb 28 - 10:12 AM

With a career average finish of 20.5 in 13 starts, Atlanta Motor Speedway is one of AJ Allmendinger’s best tracks.

Three of Allmendinger’s 13 top-10s have come on this track and that makes him a driver to watch this week. One of these—a seventh in 2015—came with his current JTG-Daugherty Racing team.

AJ Allmendinger finished 10th in the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway as the last driver on the lead lap.

'Dinger has a solid record on plate tracks in large part because he manages to stay out of trouble. Make a note to watch him closely at Talladega SuperSpeedway in May and Daytona in July. The bigger story, however, is just how chaotic and unpredictable restrictor-plate racing can be.
Feb 18 - 7:47 PM

AJ Allmendinger has scored three top-fives in the past three years and all of them have come on what are generally considered wild card tracks.

His best finish was a second at Martinsville Speedway in April 2016, followed by a third at Daytona International Speedway in last year’s 500 and a fourth at Watkins Glen International in 2016. Wild card tracks are a good place to take a risk on dark horses and Allmendinger is rarely overvalued on the short tracks and restrictor-plate, superspeedways.
Feb 1 - 5:16 PM

AJ Allmendinger is focused on racing, but it is sports cars — not stock cars — that had his immediate attention.

He is at Daytona Beach, Florida for this weekend’s Rolex 24 — the 24-hour race that kicks off the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Allmendinger will team with Trent Hindman, Katherine Legge and Àlvaro Parente, driving an Acura NSX GT3 for Michael Shank Racing in the GT Daytona class. As the lone full-time Cup driver competing in the endurance sports car race on the road course at Daytona International Speedway, he has long been regarded as one of NASCAR’s best road-course racers. And the Rolex, which he has raced every year since 2006, except last year, has become one of his favorite events.-USA Today

After a one-year absence, AJ Allmendinger will return to the Rolex 24 at Daytona next month.

Allmendinger, who drives for JTG Daugherty Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series, will once again drive for Michael Shank Racing in the endurance race at Daytona International Speedway, which will be held Jan. 27 – 28. A winner in the 2012 Rolex 24 at Daytona, Allmendinger will split time in the No. 93 Acura NSX GT3 in the GTD class with Justin Marks, Lawson Aschenbach and Mario Farnbacher.

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.
