AJ Allmendinger will enter the "Road to Recovery" program in the aftermath of his indefinite suspension for violating NASCAR's substance abuse policy.

Tara Ragan, Allmendinger's business manager, told a number of news outlets Wednesday that the substance which produced positive test results was amphetamine.  Earlier in the day, Ragan had issued a statement indicating Allmendinger's next steps in his quest to be reinstated by the sanctioning body:

“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. As we have stated earlier, we respect NASCAR's drug testing policies. They are first and foremost in place to protect drivers and AJ being among those. We fully support the program, and and as more details become available, we will share them. We would like to personally thank Mr. Helton and John Bobo for helping worked through this in an expeditious manner.”
