NASCAR Xfinity Series buy: A.J. Allmendinger

Ladies and gentlemen, he’s back.

I could have put the entire Kaulig Racing team on this list, as I believe the whole team is going to become one of the major powerhouses in all of NASCAR, period.

But I want to give A.J. Allmendinger a special mention because he is coming to a series that he has no business being in. Remember, he was a full-time Cup Series driver just three years ago.

Allmendinger is a racing veteran, not just a NASCAR veteran, who is set to race against much younger and much less experienced NASCAR drivers, and he is set to do so in what is arguably the best equipment in the series.

Doesn’t that sound like a humdinger of a reason to invest in Allmendinger for the upcoming year? I think so.

Allmendinger coming back to full-time racing gives me a lot of reason to actually watch the Xfinity Series this season. He could be a little rusty to start the season like most former part-time competitors are, but I have all of the confidence in the world that he can put Cup Series teams on notice for a career resurgence over the next few seasons.
