TALLDEGA, Ala. (AP) - AJ Allmendinger has returned to NASCAR with an appearance at Talladega Superspeedway.
Friday's visit is the first time Allmendinger has been at a NASCAR event since his July 7 suspension for failing a random drug test. He was reinstated by NASCAR last month and is looking for a job for 2013.
Allmendinger first returned to a track last month at Fontana, Calif., attending the IndyCar season finale as Roger Penske's guest. He seemed nervous before arriving but said he felt at ease as soon as he entered the garage.
He experienced the same emotions at Talladega, where he said the reception has been good. But Allmendinger says he's not sure what job opportunities exist for him in the Sprint Cup Series.
