Charlotte, NC (July 25, 2012)  “While we await further information from testing to determine the cause, we have notified NASCAR that AJ will participate in the Road to Recovery Program starting immediately.

AJ Allmendinger - not smiling tonight
NASCAR suspended Sprint Cup Series driver A.J. Allmendinger indefinitely Tuesday after a test of his backup urine sample confirmed the original positive result. The violation of NASCAR's substance abuse policy puts Allmendinger's future in NASCAR and at Penske Racing in doubt.

Allmendinger originally was suspended July 7 after failing a random drug test taken in late June. His backup ''B'' urine sample was tested Tuesday by Aegis Analytical Laboratories in Nashville, Tenn.

NASCAR officials announced the result and subsequent suspension Tuesday night. zzzz

THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT SHOULD BE ATTRIBUTED TO SHELL AND PENNZOIL:

Shell and Pennzoil believe that the process and procedures that NASCAR has in place as part of their substance abuse policy are appropriate and serve to ensure that the sport and its participants are held to the highest standards.

We share Penske Racing’s disappointment with the result of AJ’s (Allmendinger) B sample test and will work closely with them to determine plans moving forward.  We hope for the best for AJ during this difficult time.
