Mooresville, NC (Sports Network) - Penske Racing revealed on Wednesday that driver A.J. Allmendinger has been released from the team following his indefinite suspension by NASCAR for violating its substance-abuse policy.

Allmendinger, 30, was placed on temporary suspension July 7, the date of the 400-mile Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway, for failing his initial test, which he took the prior weekend when the series competed at Kentucky Speedway.

Last week, Allmendinger's suspension was upgraded to indefinite when his "B" sample tested positive. After failing the second test, NASCAR provided Allmendinger with a letter outlining a process for reinstatement by participating in the sport's "Road to Recovery Program."
