Memorable AJ Moments from 2007

In the next couple of weeks we plan to open up our "Quote Book" and share some of the most standout quotes from some of your favorite Red Bull Racing team members. This first installment includes quotes from the driver of the No. 84, AJ Allmendinger. (And since AJ always has a lot to say, stay tuned for a Part 2 blog of AJ quotes in a week or 2).

“It’s been a wild ride. No matter what happens from here on out, it’ll be 12 months I’ll never forget.” — AJ on transitioning from Champ Car to NASCAR, and getting married in between

“Are we still doing karaoke tonight?” - AJ to spotter Tim Fedewa during the Daytona truck race. Timmy's response: “Yeah, if you have Rod Stewart.”

“Just so you guys know, it’s kind of fun passing all these cars. And it is even cooler passing them on the high line. Makes you feel more like a man.” — AJ while driving to a career-best 15th-place finish Oct. 13 at Lowe’s Motor Speedway

“It’s all about holding it up high on the first lap, trying to be smooth on the second lap, holding it on the bottom and praying the car is fast enough.” — AJ on restrictor-plate qualifying

“What are we, about halfway?” - AJ on lap 46 of 500 of his first race at Bristol Motor Speedway

“I do it to learn the track, but it’s competition — whether you’re playing someone else or the computer. It’s a fun thing to do. I’d like to say it’s a relaxing thing to do, and in a lot of ways, it is. But sometimes I’m throwing that stupid controller around because I’m losing.” — AJ the video gamer

“If he (Hornaday) makes a mistake, he’s my bitch!” - AJ running 2nd in the Lowe's truck race, right before the green-white checkered restart

“Pretend there is a bag of those Quizno’s chips under the brake pedal that you don’t want to crush.” - Crew chief Ricky Viers to AJ during the first Charlotte race. AJ's response: “I could go for some of those right now.”

Got to admit, those were pretty funny, especially the one about Bristol.
Looking forward to seeing some of Brian's quotes, don't think they will be as funny though.

The Bristol quote is priceless. AJ's personality won me over as a fan. I can hardly wait for next year. The aniticipation for Daytona is like, when I was a kid waiting on Christmas day. Can't wait till we can "Go get 'em boys!"

Why would you want to watch it? It was pretty scary, especially not knowing if he was okay. I'm really glad I listen to MRN instead of Rusty, Dr. Punch, and Andy.
