INDIANAPOLIS Sprint Cup Series driver A.J. Allmendinger has agreed to enter NASCAR's Road to Recovery program, one day after failing a second drug test.
Tara Ragan, vice president of Walldinger Racing and Allmendinger's business manager, also confirmed Allmendinger tested positive for amphetamines in both his A and B samples of the random drug test that brought about his indefinite suspension by NASCAR.
Previously, Ragan had only said Allmendinger tested positive for a stimulant.
NASCAR officials would neither confirm nor deny Ragan's statement, citing its policy of not releasing the substances which cause positive drug tests.
Allmendinger must complete the program in order to be reinstated, although there is no guarantee there will be a job waiting for him. Recovery programs can last from a few months to a year or more.
