KANSAS CITY, Kan. – official release — Jamie Squire/Getty Images for Kansas Speedway photo — A.J. Allmendinger is having the time of his life.

After a thrilling win at Watkins Glen, Allmendinger is locked in the 2014 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and excited to compete for his first NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship.

“Being tagged as the underdog, the pressure is off of our team, we are ready to have fun and compete for a championship,” said Allmendinger.

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup begins this weekend in Chicago and Championship hopeful Allmendinger visited Kansas City in the Chase Across North America event today to promote the fourth race in the Chase, the Hollywood Casino 400, October 5 at Kansas Speedway.

The first stops on Allmendinger’s trip were local radio and TV outlets to talk about his strategy going into the 2014 Chase.

Next stop was Hy-Vee, the Official Grocer and Tailgate Pit Stop of Kansas Speedway, to meet with fans and decorate cookies with his official Chase hashtag, #DingerNation.

Allmendinger, who is currently 13th in the Chase standings, says he likes his chances in the Chase with the new format.

“I think each week, each race track and just being competitive, being in the mix is what is important to us. You want to get the best finish possible and if there is an opportunity to win you are going to try to win it to get to the next round.”
