IndyCar driver Justin Wilson first raced with Michael Shank Racing back in 2006. The Englishman will aid the team in the final four Rolex Grand-Am races of 2013: Road America, Kansas Speedway, Laguna Seca, and Lime Rock.
AJ Allmendinger lost his ride last year due to failing the NASCAR random drug test. He ended up in the NASCAR Road to Recovery and made his return to racing. Now it appears his former team boss will give him a shot in an IndyCar.
Team owner Michael Shank stood by his long-time friend AJ Allmendinger during his time of admission regarding the failed drug test, and encouraged the race car driver to complete the NASCAR Road to Recovery program.
