A.J. Allmendinger: Driving for Phoenix Racing in 2013
Update: Phoenix Racing team owner James Finch is close to settling on his lineup for 2013. Finch said Thursday that Regan Smith will run the Daytona 500 in the No. 51 Chevy. But with Smith concentrating on his new gig with JR Motorsports, there will be an opportunity for Allmendinger as well, FOX Sports reports.

Recommendation: Allmendinger drove for owner James Finch in four of the final races of last season. His top finish was 24th-place at Charlotte Motor Speedway. While the upcoming season's schedule for the No. 51 Chevrolet is just coming into focus, it looks like Allmendinger could be in line for a lot of starts in this team's car.
