CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A.J. Allmendinger has been reinstated by NASCAR after completing its ``Road to Recovery'' program.
Allmendinger was suspended in July for failing a random drug test a month earlier. His backup ``B'' urine sample also tested positive for a substance NASCAR has not revealed. He has said he tested positive for a prescription drug, Adderall, typically used to treat attention deficit disorder. He said he took it because he was tired.
Allmendinger was released by Penske Racing after the ``B'' sample failed. Team owner Roger Penske had Allmendinger at the IndyCar season finale last weekend as his guest, and said Allmendinger is a viable candidate for rides in both NASCAR and IndyCar.
Penske also said he'd consider hiring Allmendinger again.
