AJ Allmendinger wins chaotic
A new era began at Indianapolis Motor Speedway when AJ Allmendinger took the checkered flag to win a first NASCAR Cup race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway that no one will forget.
Allmendinger, who raced his only Indianapolis 500 in 2013, had a chance to win that frustrated race when he was forced to pit late with a seat belt lose. On Sunday, however, Allmendinger, in a single inning for Kaulig Racing, survived the carnage of the final laps to avenge his misfortune eight years earlier and win the Verizon 200 at Brickyard.
The race began with Mitchell, Ind. Native Chase Briscoe leading more laps than he had in the entire season. The winner of last year’s Xfinity race spent the day fighting for a win to keep his playoff hopes alive. Briscoe’s race was eventful, he raced in front but then had a tire problem. He was able to bounce back but finished 26th after a thrilling battle with Denny Hamlin that ended with him traversing the grass at Turn 1 and then turning Hamlin during the final restart.
“At the time, he was looking for victory,” Briscoe said on the NBC broadcast. “I wanted to beat him fairly. I’ve never purposely ruined anyone in my life.”
Hamlin accepted that it was unintentional, but that Briscoe should have been more conscientious. “Obviously if you cut the race track and you are in the lead, you will have a penalty,” Hamlin said. “I don’t think he did it maliciously, but it was just bad judgment.”
However, the story of the day was the chicane at Turn 5-6. NASCAR removed one of the sausage curbs on that section of the track at the end of the Xfinity race on Saturday. When the Cup cars took the green flag, a different curb started to become a problem.
A divider became trapped under the curb early in the race, requiring marshals to carry mallets during stage breaks. Unfortunately, the curb could not withstand the rigorous abuse of the Cup cars and gave way during a late restart of the race. Several cars were destroyed in multiple different accidents arising from the same section of the track.
After a chaotic series of late-race restarts, the outstanding push from Kyle Larson, who led 28 laps, almost went to no avail when he was returned to the field. He was able to rebound to finish third, behind Allmendinger and runner-up Ryan Blaney. Larson won the Knoxville Nationals speed car race on Saturday night and only slept for a few hours before the green flag on Sunday. He qualified fourth in the morning session and took a quick nap in the two hours between qualifying and the race.
Larson dueled teammates Chase Elliott and William Byron for the lead of the race until the final 10 laps. There were several moments with close action, side by side, through the twists and turns of the road circuit that is now 21 years old. Pit strategy was still imperative and many teams took risks to earn extra points. With the Playoffs now two races away, teams in the bubble took a chance to maximize their potential point gains.
Tyler Reddick, who finished 21st, won the first two stages to accumulate 20 stage points. With third place, Larson leaves without a point problem. And even though Briscoe turned him around late in the race and finished 23rd, Hamlin managed to clinch a playoff spot.
The chaos in the final laps gave AJ Allmendinger a chance to claim victory. Allmendinger was in the third place when leaders Briscoe and Hamlin tangled. He held off Ryan Blaney on the white flag lap and scored his second career Cup victory.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway tends to be a track where the best drivers of their generations come and win. With Allmendinger’s victory on Sunday, he showed everyone why he is one of the best road racers in NASCAR. More importantly, he has also added his name in the history books not only as of the first Cup winner on the infield road course but also as the winner at Indianapolis.
