AJ Allmendinger Released From Penske Racing (WITH STATEMENTS)

1

This morning, Penske Racing announced that driver AJ Allmendinger has been released as driver of the #22 Shell Dodge. This comes a week after Allmendinger was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR for a banned stimulant. Sam Hornish Jr will remain in the #22 for the remainder of the season. After the season is over, the team will then evaluate their options for 2013. Penske Racing released the following statement. "Penske Racing fully supports NASCAR's substance abuse policy and we are disappointed with AJ's positive drug test results," team owner Roger Penske in a statement. "AJ is a terrific driver, a good person and it is very unfortunate that we have to separate at this time. We have invested greatly in AJ and we were confident in his success with our team. The decision to dismiss him is consistent with how we would treat any other Penske Racing team member under similar circumstances. As AJ begins NASCAR's 'Road to Recovery' program, we wish him the best and look forward to seeing him compete again in NASCAR." AJ Allmendinger also released a statement this morning. "I apologize for the distraction, embarrassment, and difficulties that my current suspension from NASCAR has provided. As I stated last week, I have begun NASCAR's Road to Recovery program and look forward to using those resources and its completion to compete again in NASCAR in the near future." Are you surprised by the move to release AJ Allmendinger? Let us know in the comments section!
