Allmendinger suspension

NASCAR team owner Roger Penske will meet with suspended driver A.J. Allmendinger this week to discuss his future with the team.

Penske said his companyís employees are subject to random drug testing and he has released employees who have tested positive in the past. But Penske said Allmendinger is an independent contractor and isnít necessarily subject to the same policies.

Allmendinger was suspended July 7 after he tested positive in late June. NASCAR extended his suspension indefinitely this week after his backup urine sample confirmed his initial positive test.
