Penske Racing driver AJ Allmendinger who was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR Tuesday night after his second failed test for a banned substance, has made his first public statement since he was first suspended on July 7.
Allmendinger was put on a temporary suspension hours before the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway after failing a random drug test the week prior. Allmendinger elected to have a second sample taken along with the first tested Tuesday. That sample also tested positive for a banned substance and NASCAR placed the driver on indefinite suspension.
Early Wednesday morning, Allmendinger took to Twitter to post his first comments about his ordeal. MORE>>>
