AJ Allmendinger Advised to Avoid Any Rash Decisions After Failed Kyle Busch NASCAR Move

Recently, AJ Allmendinger had a conversation with esteemed NASCAR journalist, Bob Pockrass, where he was asked whether 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’s question while making his intentions clear.

pockrass statedWith Kaulig Racing not having named a 2023 driver for the No. 16 Cup car (and now that Kyle Busch isn’t available), would AJ Allmendinger go back full-time Cup racing in that car? Allmendinger says he’ll do what’s best for the company but no discussions yet.

In the video, we hear, AJ Allmendinger state, “Bob I really haven’t put any thoughts into it, haven’t had a talk about it with Matt and Kris. You know I’ve stated since the beginning that, I’m willing to do whatever they think is right for the company. And I love the Xfinity series. I have so much fun, really the four years, the last four years I’ve been in it. And obviously, the last two years being full-time. I’ve enjoyed it, you know I think there’s definitely a direction to make the program stronger, on the Xfinity side of it.

I’ve enjoyed the Cup races that I’ve done. I think what Kaulig Racing in general is doing in the Cup Series for the first year is pretty good, really. Especially, in my last few races in the car, we’ve had some really good runs and Justin’s doing a great job all year. So it comes down to what they think is right. I’m open to anything, I’m just enjoying my time right now. Quite honestly, Bob, I love being a part of Kaulig racing and everything about it so it’s open to them but I haven’t had any discussions.

NASCAR fans react to the statement made by AJ Allmendinger

Fans reacted in support of the Kaulig racing driver and advised him to not make a rash decision, but rather an informed decision. All of this stirred up after there were rumors of Kyle Busch potentially headed towards Kaulig Racing. However that deal never came to light, instead, RCR confirmed earlier this month that Kyle Busch would be driving the number 8 car for them.
