MARTINSVILLE, Va.—AJ Allmendinger isn’t a patient person, so it’s a good thing the driver of the No. 47 JTG/Daugherty Chevrolet can see real progress early in his first full season with the team.

Five days after posting his first top-10 finish with JTG/Daugherty (eighth at Auto Club Speedway), Allmendinger qualified 15th for Sunday’s STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, his best starting spot of the season. Allmendinger missed the top 12 by 0.016 seconds.

“We’ll be close enough to the front to at least be able to see when it goes green,” Allmendinger quipped. “When you miss by one 100th, it’s kind of tough to swallow, but, ultimately, we’re making our Chevy stronger each weekend.

“We’re steadily improving.”
