JTG Daugherty Racing officials announced that AJ Allmendinger will pilot the #47 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry full-time beginning with the 2014 season.
“For me, it is an amazing opportunity,” Allmendinger said. “I looked at this year as a new beginning for me. I have worked hard and feel fortunate about every opportunity this season, and I am very grateful. It has been nice to have the chance to really get to know the JTG Daugherty Racing team and the owners Brad (Daugherty), Jodi and Tad (Geschickter). This is the start of something full-time, and I look forward to the next full blown chapter of my career with JTG Daugherty Racing.”
“We are very thankful to Bobby,” JTG Daugherty Racing co-owner Brad Daugherty said. “He did such a great job establishing baselines for our company and we are glad we were able to extend his racing streak as long as we did. He is a champion of our sport and has won 21 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races. He has a Hall of Fame career and we are very thankful to him and want to work with him in the future with our company. We will try to provide him with best resources to get him to victory lane this season.”
As one chapter closes for the JTG Daugherty #47 team, a new one begins with Allmendinger. “We are pleased to have an opportunity to work with AJ going forward,” Daugherty said. “We think he is up and coming with so much potential in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. We have a great opportunity to get to victory lane. AJ’s hungry to compete to win. We are looking forward to the next chapter of our program and he is a big part of it.”(JTG Daugherty Racing)
