CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- AJ Allmendinger will get another start with Phoenix Racing this weekend at Kansas Speedway.
Phoenix general manager Steve Barkdoll said Monday the team was pleased with Allmendinger's performance at Charlotte Motor Speedway. He finished 24th in Saturday night's race in his first start since failing a random drug test in July.
Phoenix had planned to use Regan Smith, but Hendrick Motorsports asked for Smith when Dale Earnhardt Jr. was sidelined with a concussion. Earnhardt is also out for Sunday's race at Kansas.
