Penske Says He Is Willing to Re-Hire Allmendinger

Penske says, he feels Allmendinger has been too reclusive as he completes the program. So, Allmendinger attended the IZOD IndyCar Series finale.
I told AJ I wanted him to come to a race; I think he had been kind of undercover for quite a bit of the time, and I thought it would be good for him to get out and see people here, talk to some of the team owners. … I think hopefully we’ll get some answer from NASCAR as quickly as possible because the Chase has started now, hopefully they’ll give him a clean bill of health and he can move on. This is a speed bump in his career, but he’s certainly an option for people on the NASCAR side and the Indy side. He did a great job when you think about what he did in Champ Car.
When asked if he would hire Almmendinger, Penske said:
He could be an option for us, for sure.
While Penske may be willing to re-hire Allmendinger, a sponsor would have to be willing to sponsor him, which may make a return to NASCAR difficult, if not impossible.
