Roger Penske releases AJ Allmendinger, wishes him well

AJ Allmendinger: what next?


   By Mike Mulhern

   Roger Penske officially dropped AJ Allmendinger Wednesday morning, a week after the racer was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR for failing a drug test.
   The announcement:
   "AJ Allmendinger has been released as driver of the No. 22 Dodge Charger in the NASCAR Cup Series.
   "Penske Racing fully supports NASCAR's substance abuse policy and we are disappointed with AJ's positive drug test results
   "AJ is a terrific driver, a good person and it is very unfortunate that we have to separate at this time.
  "We have invested greatly in AJ and we were confident in his success with our team.
   "The decision to dismiss him is consistent with how we would treat any other Penske Racing team member under similar circumstances.  
   "As AJ begins NASCAR's Road to Recovery program, we wish him the best and look forward to seeing him compete again in NASCAR."
   Penske said Sam Hornish Jr. will continue driving that car "for the foreseeable future."
    Penske says he is still evaluating his options for that part of his two-car team for next season.


Ford and RFR

Just a thought, speculation etc, but could it be that Ford may now be re-thinking its "all the eggs in the RFR" basket? Could that be why Penske may be building it's own engines?
I still remember Mark Martin running out of gas at Daytona in Jack's Ford. Jack said "there should be plenty of gas". He simply didn't consider the banking.....
