Yesterday after AJ Allmendinger’s B test came back positive, by NASCARS rule book Allmendinger was suspended indefinitely until he completes NASCARS “Road to Recovery” program.
Today it was released that AJ will take part in the program starting immediately.
Below is the statement from VP of Walldinger Racing, Tara Ragan.
Charlotte, NC (July 25, 2012)
“While we await further information from testing to determine the cause, we have notified NASCAR that AJ will participate in the Road to Recovery Program starting immediately. As we have stated earlier, we respect NASCAR’s drug testing policies. They are first and foremost in place to protect drivers and AJ being among those. We fully support the program, and and as more details become available, we will share them. We would like to personally thank Mr. Helton and John Bobo for helping worked through this in an expeditious manner.”
