MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - AJ Allmendinger will drive in IndyCar's Belle Isle Grand Prix Dual in Detroit.
Team Penske confirmed the move Friday. He will drive the No. 2 Quicken Loans Dallara/Chevrolet on the 2.3-mile street circuit. It is IndyCar's first doubleheader weekend, with races on both June 1 and June 2.
Allmendinger has spent the past six seasons in NASCAR after spending his early career in Champ Car. Team owner Roger Penske has given the driver a second chance after firing him last summer for failing a NASCAR drug test. Allmendinger has raced in four Cup Series events for Phoenix Racing in addition to two IndyCar Series starts. He will race in the Indianapolis 500 later this month.
