Hornish In For Allmendinger Again
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Sam Hornish, Jr. will once again replace A.J. Allmendinger in the No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge this Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Allmendinger was notified by NASCAR just hours before last Saturday’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona Int’l Speedway that he had failed a random drug test he’d taken at Kentucky Speedway the previous week.
“Penske Racing is continuing to work with NASCAR to follow its process and procedures related to the positive drug test that AJ Allmendinger was notified of this past weekend,” Penske Racing said in a statement. “While this process continues, Sam Hornish Jr. will drive the No. 22 car in this week’s Sprint Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.”
NASCAR has not revealed what Allmendinger tested positive for during his drug test. There is no time table on when Allmendinger will be allowed back in the car.
