A.J. Allmendinger returns to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the No. 51 for Phoenix Racing for the first time since his last race at Texas Motor Speedway in November 2012.

With Guy Roofing sponsoring the Chevrolet at Phoenix International Raceway, Allmendinger will be paired again with crew chief Nick Harrison on top of the pit box. Although he has eight starts at Phoenix, this will be Allmendinger's first race in the Generation-6 car.

In 2010, Allmendinger sat on the pole and has two top-10 finishes at the track. He has finished outside of the top 20 only once, in his first start.

"It's been a few months since I've been in a stock car," Allmendinger said. "I haven't been in one of the Gen 6 cars yet, so I think it will take a little time to get acclimated to it. Phoenix International Raceway is a great place for me to get back behind the wheel. I've always enjoyed the race track. It will definitely feel different, but I'll be ready to go."
