Allmendinger gets back in Cup car in Phoenix

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

A.J. Allmendinger will make his NASCAR season debut this Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway.

Allmendinger, who didn't have a ride for the season-opening Daytona 500, will drive for Phoenix Racing in the No. 51 Guy Roofing Chevrolet. It will be Allmendinger's fifth race with Phoenix Racing, which gave him a chance last year after NASCAR reinstated him following his suspension for failing a random drug test.

Allmendinger has eight previous Cup starts at the Phoenix track, where he's got two top-10 finishes. He's also won one pole and started on the front row three times.
