AJ Allmendinger is returning to Indianapolis Motor Speedway _ but in a Grand-AM car for longtime friend Michael Shank.
Justin Wilson had a chance to enjoy a weekend off for the first time in two months.
Michael Shank has sold his IndyCar to Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, officially ending his bid to run a full-time program in the series.
It is a tale of two tours: One for Mitt Romney, the other for those who pine to be his running mate.
Suspended NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger said Wednesday that he tested positive for a stimulant and was collecting his medicines and supplements in an attempt to figure out what got him in trouble.
Michael Shank said Monday that he is running out of time to secure an engine for his Indianapolis 500 entry.
"Unfortunately Antonio's group had some sponsorship challenges, so we needed to develop a new plan for this weekend," Shank said. "It is a shame. Antonio is a true talent, and we really appreciated his efforts _ he was quick right from the start for us. We are very lucky to have someone like Justin available on this short notice, and I want to thank (Coyne) for letting him race with us at the Glen."
"Why must the tragic Colorado theater shootings stimulate a debate on more than mere gun control? Not simply because, or however remarkable the fact that, violent mass killings — whether in Columbine, Virginia Tech or now Aurora — tend to have little sustained influence or impact over public attitudes vis-a-vis gun control, but because the root cause of violence is much more multifaceted and complex than access to military-grade weaponry," says Michael Shank, vice president of the Institute for Economics and Peace and a Huffington Post contributor.
