Just off a fifteenth place showing at the Auto Club 400 in Fontana, Allmendinger reflected on his first year with Penske Racing last Saturday, “We’ve had fast race cars; we’ve just had a lot of bad luck. I know people can always say that, but we’ve been a lot faster than what we’ve shown.” Then Allmendinger predicted, “I’m really looking forward to Martinsville. I think we can go there and turn the season around and really get the finish we deserve because we’ve had the speed.” Indeed!
During the Likis/Allmendinger bench race, Allmendinger revealed that he is the official spokesperson for Scott® Pro Shop Towels “Take the Challenge” Sweepstakes. The 470-horsepower prize is a 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT which Allmendinger will present to the “Take the Challenge” winner live on Spike TV in Nashville in November. Says Allmendinger, “I love the Scott® Pro Shop Towels partnership, and I’ve already got good mojo about the relationship. I started a go-cart team, so this is a product that my team and I can really use when we’re in the go-cart shop.”
Likis chimes in, “I can second that emotion as I switched my automotive service shop to Scott® Shop Towels from cloth rags years ago. And now I’m looking forward to putting the Scott® Pro Shop Towels to the rugged test.”
