AJ Allmendinger, Penn State, State Farm & Nashville Predators News: 7/25, Vol. 193, 3rd Edition

I need your glory, I want your glory, less of me and more of you, Is what I need.  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

AJ Allmendinger
suspended indefinitely 
The ‘B’ sample landed him an ‘E’ and the stands for ‘end’ of the road as AJ Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR indefinitely as his B sample results were the same as the original drug test result.  With the B sample results, Allmendinger can either enter into NASCAR’s Road to Recovery program that will start the process of reinstatement or he can seek legal action to attempt to discredit the test.  In the meantime, Penske Racing announced Sam Hornish, Jr. will drive the #22 car this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
