On Thursday, March 2nd at 5:30 PM, AJ Allmendinger is signing autographs for fans at the Kroger Griffin, Ga. store prior to racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend.
“I’m looking forward to visiting the Kroger store in Griffin and spending time with our fans,” Allmendinger said. “Before heading over to Kroger, I’m ordering my groceries online with Kroger’s ClickList and picking them up at the store. I figured since I needed to make a grocery store run, let’s add on an autograph session. We’ll be doing some personal shopping with a few fans too. Also, if you order your groceries with ClickList regularly, you never know, I might help you load your groceries in your car. It’s going to be a fun event. Come out and see us!”
Following the Kroger store visit, Allmendinger shifts his focus to Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton (Ga.) as he looks to add to his three top-10 finishes at the 1.54-mile quad-oval in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
“We definitely made our 1.5-mile program a lot better,” Allmendinger said. “The last couple of years, that was by far our biggest weakness. We weren’t even close on the 1.5-mile tracks. Last year, I felt like early in the year we were pretty good and then we seemed to struggle mid-summer, but at the end of the year we really pushed forward and worked on getting downforce. That is what is tough about the 1.5-mile tracks, is the fact that a lot of it is car-based. All the speed comes from the shop, building the race cars, getting all those edges fine-tuned and just trying to get max downforce into the cars. I felt like at the end of last year we really hit on something that made our cars better. We worked on those areas going into places like Charlotte Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway. That makes us look forward to Atlanta.”
