AJ advised Allmendinger to avoid any rash decisions after Kyle Busch NASCAR move failed

Recently, AJ Allmendinger had a chat with respected NASCAR journalist, Bob Pockrass, where he was asked if he had any discussions regarding his potential move to the Cup series as a full-time driver with Kaulig Racing. Allmendinger took his time to answer Pockrass’ question while clarifying his intentions.

In the video, we hear, AJ Allmendinger says, “Bob I didn’t put any ideas into it, nor did I talk about it with Matt and Chris. You know I said from the start that I’m willing to do whatever they think is right for the company. And I love the Xfinity series. I enjoyed a lot, really the four years, the last four years I’ve been there. Obviously the last two years have been full time. I enjoyed it, you know I think there is definitely a trend to make the software stronger, on the Xfinity side of it.

I enjoyed my cup races. I think what Kaulig Racing is doing overall in the first-year cup series is really, really, really good. In particular, in my last few races in the car, we’ve had some really good runs and Justin has done a great job all year. So it comes down to what they think is right. I’m open to anything, I’m enjoying my time now. Quite frankly, Bob, I love being a part of the College Race and everything about it, so it’s open to them but I haven’t had any discussions.

NASCAR fans react to statement made by AJ Allmendinger

Fans reacted in support of College Race And the driver advised him not to make a hasty decision, but rather an informed one. All this sparked after rumors spread that Kyle Busch might be headed toward the College Race. However, that deal was never revealed, and instead, RCR confirmed earlier this month that Kyle Busch would drive the #8 for them.
