Herbst Hints He’ll Repay Allmendinger Next Weekend at Portland

After being wiped out in an incident on Lap 30 of Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series BetMGM 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Riley Herbst was not a happy camper in regards to AJ Allmendinger, who he felt hooked him on the exit of Turn 2.

Here is a video of the incident that ended Herbst’s day:

After being evaluated and released from the infield care center at the 1.5-mile speedway in Concord, North Carolina, Herbst was still seething after what he felt was an avoidable incident with Allmendinger.

Herbst hinted that he may make Allmendinger’s weekend next week at his favorite track, one to forget.

“I haven’t seen a replay. I passed him twice, cleanly. Slid him. Racing at Charlotte, it’s hot. I passed him. I think next weekend is Portland, his favorite race track. We’ll see what happens,” Herbst stated.

Herbst said that he made a slide job on Allmendinger through Turns 1 and 2, and felt that Allmendinger could have done the same thing right back to take the spot back, but instead, Allmendinger, in Herbst’s opinion, decided to end his day early.

“My spotter said I was clear, I moved up to the fence, and he had a run off the top, which is fine,” Herbst explained. “He could have tried to slide me back and get some momentum, but instead he just got into my left rear and hooked me. Unfortunate, but probably unfortunate for him.”

With Charlotte Motor Speedway having an exit tunnel, we don’t expect any post-race fireworks between Herbst and Allmendinger at Charlotte Motor Speedway, but it’ll be interesting to see if Herbst makes good on his threat to do something to Allmendinger in next week’s race at Portland International Raceway.
