DAYTONA BEACH, FL (AP) -
AJ Allmendinger, driver of the No. 22 car in the Sprint Cup Series, has been suspended indefinitely from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body's substance abuse policy.
On July 24, Allmendinger was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (NASCAR's substance abuse policy) of the 2012 NASCAR rule book.
Allmendinger has agreed to participate in a recovery program after violating the series' substance abuse policy.
In a statement issued Wednesday by Allmendinger's business manager, Tara Ragan, Allmendinger says he will participate in NASCAR's "Road to Recovery" program. The program includes an evaluation by a substance abuse professional, counseling or rehabilitation.
The series has not said what substance Allmendinger tested positive for. Allmendinger has said he tested positive for a stimulant and did not knowingly ingest a banned substance.
Allmendinger, who is with Penske Racing, says he has hired an independent laboratory in an attempt to find what triggered the positive test.
