Martinsville Rain Can’t Hamper Allmendinger’s Outlook
AJ Allmendinger, driver of the No. 43 Charter Ford Fusion, is scheduled to start 21st in tomorrow’s rain-delayed Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500. Allmendinger spoke about racing on Monday shortly after it was announced that rain had postponed Sunday’s scheduled event.
AJ ALLMENDINGER – No. 43 Charter Ford Fusion – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON HAVING TO RACE ON MONDAY? “I love it. Put it this way, I’ve been on the side of it to where when rain affected qualifying or something like that, it made me miss the race. Having to spend a couple years like that, I’m in a position now where I’m just happy whenever we get to race. Yeah, it’s difficult. It stinks for the fans and all the teams, but the fortunate thing is we’ve got an off-week coming up, so it’s not like this is gonna put everybody way behind. I’m just happy. I’m happy whenever I get to be in the car, whether that’s Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. When we get to drop the green, I know we’ll have a good car and we’ll be ready to go.”
