AJ Allmendinger Heard Strange Voices During Daytona 500

During the Daytona 500, drivers were able to speak with other drivers aside from their teammates via radio communication for perhaps the first time ever.

And for AJ Allmendinger, it all got a little confusing.

"It was funny, because multiple times, I had some voice come over my radio and ask me to work with him," Allmendinger said. "I'm like, 'Who the hell are you? Who's talking to me?"

"Oh, this is David Ragan," came one response.

"Oh, OK," Allmendinger replied.

Under the next caution, another driver called Allmendinger on the radio.

"I'd be like, 'Who in the hell is this?'" Allmendinger said.

"Oh, it's Carl. Do you want to work together?" the voice replied.

"I'm like, 'How to you keep getting my radio channel? Leave me alone!'" Allmendinger said with a laugh. "I mean, it was strange."

Allmendinger clearly worked well with others, though – he finished 11th in the Daytona 500.
