|NASCAR Moves On Without Suspended Allmendinger
|LONG POND, Pa. (AP) -- Sam Hornish Jr. is driving the No. 22 for Penske Racing for what the team calls "the foreseeable future."
Hornish just shrugs. He says he doesn't know what that really means.
Hornish does know he wants to keep the ride for this season and beyond. He got an unexpected new life in Sprint Cup because of A.J. Allmendinger's failed drug test.
Penske released Allmendinger this week, giving Hornish more time to show he deserves a permanent job.
Allmendinger's only way to come back to the series is to complete NASCAR's rehabilitation program.
