AJ Allmendinger Issues First Comment In Series Of 2 A.M. Tweets

AJ Allmendinger had yet to comment on his positive drug test and suspension from NASCAR since the news first broke just hours before the Daytona race on July 7.

But early Wednesday morning, following the news that his 'B' sample also tested positive, Allmendinger issued a series of tweets shortly before 2 a.m. Eastern thanking his fans for their support and vowing to return to NASCAR:

Obviously, there were a couple spelling errors and missed words in the statement. And because of that, it's a bit confusing to read. Our best guess for what he intended to say (with all the mistakes cleaned up) is this: "I just want to say, 'Thank you' first and foremost for all of you sticking by me. Please don't think me being suspended means I haven't been reading all your support. And, man, it means more than you will ever know. I'm sorry we even have to have this going on. But I promise: I will do whatever it takes to get to the bottom of this and get back out there no matter what. Thanks, guys."

UPDATE: Tweep @mary4jr88 suggested Allmendinger's missing word might have been "silent" or "quiet," not
"suspended." She has a great point.

Allmendinger must have gotten a lot of feedback about the mistakes, because at 2:22 a.m., he tweeted:
