Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
What a turnaround it has been for A.J. Allmendinger during the past 10 months.
Allmendinger suffered a major career setback last July when he was suspended by NASCAR for failing a drug test. It eventually led to his dismissal from Penske Racing's team in the Sprint Cup Series.
After reuniting with owner Roger Penske earlier this year to drive one of his Indy cars, Allmendinger is about to achieve one of his racing dreams, competing in the Indianapolis 500.
