AJ Allmendinger crashes early in Detroit _ again

DETROIT (AP) — AJ Allmendinger has had a rough weekend in the Motor City.

The Penske Racing driver crashed on the opening lap for the second straight day at the Detroit Grand Prix.

He was in a pack of cars when he hit a wall Sunday. Allmendinger took the blame for getting squeezed between two cars in a crash Saturday.

Penske Racing plans to put Allmendinger in NASCAR Nationwide Series road course races this month and in August.

He has driven a limited NASCAR schedule since his suspension for a failed drug test last year. Penske fired Allmendinger but gave him another chance in IndyCar and is extending another opportunity in stock cars this summer.
