After being suspended indefinitely this past July for testing positive for amphetamines, NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver AJ Allmendinger has been reinstated after completing NASCAR’s  Substance Abuse Policy Road to Recovery Program. 

Allmendinger released a statement on his website:

I want to thank everyone for their support through this entire process.  I appreciate that NASCAR created the the Road to Recovery program,  and am grateful for the opportunity to return to competition. The Road to Recovery program was really helpful to me in getting my priorities reset away from the race track. And, honestly, that helped find my love of racing again and why I began racing in the first place. I’m looking forward to taking this experience and be better for it moving forward.”

Right now, Allmendinger is without a ride as Sam Hornish Jr. is currently driving the #22 that AJ drove before his suspension. Joey Logano signed a deal to drive the car starting next season. Car owner Roger Penske though said a few days ago that he would consider re-hiring after his suspension was up saying “It’s an option for us, for sure“.
