Allmendinger fails drug test

Allmendinger fails drug test
This is sad news for former Indy driver AJ Allmendinger. He failed Nascar random drug test and has been suspended.

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/motor/nas...56100576/1

This kid was a real promising talent in Indy a few years back. His chances of fighting this and being reinstated at this point are probably slim at best.

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
Getting a ride with Team Penske is like mounting a prancing horse at Maranello. What a way to thank the Captain! But, then again, he is not his first driver to have drug issues......

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
Would this be recreational drugs or performance enhancing stuff?

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
I haven't seen anything confirming exactly what drug was found. What drug would help you turn left?

Sorry, yeah, it's NASCAR, what was I thinking.

Yea I was thinking no-doze.

And by the way, with regards to the turning left thing, since the steering wheels are biased to turning left, it's more like just keeping the wheel straight for 4(?) hours.

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
"Neither Allmendinger nor NASCAR officials have disclosed the drug he tested positive for. Allmendinger said only that it was a stimulant, which includes a wide range of drugs under NASCAR’s substance-abuse policy"

Results of the 'B' sample may apparently be due on Wednesday.

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
It's official, Allmendinger failed the 2nd drug test and is now suspended indefinitely. It's not likely he will ever make it back to Nascar. I'm sure Penske has already told him to clean out his locker. So where does a 30-yr old former CART and suspended Nascar driver go from here?

I'm sure HRT could do with a third driver.

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
That's what you call grass-roots racing. And did you see how packed those grandstands were?

Here is my kids (and mother-in-law's) favorite kind of racing.
Maybe Allmendinger could have a future here as a spotter.

RE: Allmendinger fails drug test
To my knowledge no Nascar driver has returned to driving Cup races after going through this program, so AJ would be the first.

i don't understand the point of having your agent go to the press and say absolutely nothing.
