SPRINT CUP 2012: BREAKING NEWS: A.J. Allmendinger Suspended

Penske driver, A.J. Allmendinger, seen by many as a rising star in NASCAR, has been suspended on the basis of a routine random drug test. Meanwhile, the team is rushing to prepare the #22 car for Sam Hornish who is being rushed to Daytona from Charlotte, NC to compete in tonight's race.

Drivers with legitimate prescription issues MUST provide documentation to NASCAR.  No matter what one's feelings are on mild drugs like marijuana, when a person's perception and ability could even be remotely influenced in a sport with possible LETHAL consequences, NASCAR is correct to handle all drug infractions severely.

The spector of Jeremy Mayfield is still too fresh for anyone to take the situation lightly. The world has seen that his NASCAR test was only the tip of an iceberg for a life that was spiraling out of control.
