2014 Watkins Glen: AJ Allmendinger NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Quotes


AJ ALLMENDINGER, NO. 47 SCOTT PRODUCTS CHEVROLET SS - RACE WINNER

TELL US ABOUT LAP 89 WHEN MARCOS GOT PAST YOU: "Yeah, I mean I knew our car was slick on restarts on the tires and I knew Marcos was going to try to move me out of the way if he had the opportunity. To his credit he didn’t wreck me. He just moved me like he should have. I went down into the next corner and leaned on him a little bit to see if I could get a gap and get them racing behind me. I knew if I could just get a three or four car length gap they weren’t going to get back to me. That was just a fun race. Thanks to the fans for enduring two red flags, the track workers for putting the track back together a couple of times. Everybody at home if you didn’t love that you are not a fan of racing."

RIGHT BEFORE THE RED FLAG YOU PASSED MARCOS FOR THE LEAD DID YOU KNOW YOU WERE THE LEADER AT THAT POINT IN TIME?

"They told me I was. I didn’t know for sure. It’s the same thing. He put a great move on the restart. I thought Kurt was behind me enough that he couldn’t cut under me. And Marcos made a great move we went side-by-side through the esses which you are not supposed to. Clean racing and he kind of had his tires used up. He got loose into the last corner I got back around him and the caution came out. At that point I didn’t think it really mattered who controlled the restart it was going to be a battle to the finish."

WHAT DOES THIS WIN MEAN TO YOU? YOU ARE NOW IN THE CHASE: "Honestly the Chase doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s cool once we sit down and think about it, but just to everything I’ve went through all I’ve wanted to do for the last how many years is win a Sprint Cup race. It’s so hard. Jimmie (Johnson) makes it look too easy he wins so many. For this race team Tad and Jodi Geschickter, everybody at this No. 47 team, Brad Daugherty, to win our first Cup race together that means the world to me. We have so many great sponsors Scott Products everybody."

WHAT DID ROGER PENSKE SAY WHEN HE CAME BY VICTORY LANE TO CONGRATULATE YOU? "He just said he was proud of me and to have him and Bud Denker, Walt C and everybody at Penske Racing that means so much to me. To have RC, Richard Childress, because he means so much to this team the alliance that he has he has opened his doors to us. That right there honestly is probably the best memory I will have because that means the world to me."

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?

"First off, all of our condolences here in NASCAR and this whole NASCAR family to the Ward family. We’re racing with heavy hearts today. I can’t even imagine what they are going through. We’re a community here and we’re all thinking about you.

"My gosh, I can’t believe we won a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. With this whole No. 47 team. Tad Geschickter and Brad Daugherty and all the great sponsors we have; our first Cup victory together, my first Cup victory, I love these guys. I just wanted it so bad for them and this team. They deserve it. They work so hard. I wasn’t going to let Marcos (Ambrose) take this from me. I hope the fans loved that race here and at home, because it was fun in the race car."

TAKE US THROUGH THAT FINAL TWO LAPS

"I just knew on that restart if he (Ambrose) could get to me he’d move me out of the way just like I’d do to him. It wasn’t rough. He didn’t try to wreck me. He just moved me and so I just leaned on him. I knew if I could get a gap and get them racing behind me, it was game over. So that’s what I did."

HOW ABOUT ALL THOSE ICONS WHO HAVE COME TO CONGRATULATE YOU?

"I just don’t even know what to say to that. That just means more than anything to me to have those guys. They’ve been such a mix of supporters of mine. I need to thank Roger and the whole Penske Racing for what they did for me last year; and RC (Richard Childress) for this whole alliance. He opened the doors to this race team; giving us everything could have to go out there and compete. We won a race! We won a Sprint Cup race!"
