CONCORD, N.C. (AP) -- AJ Allmendinger has lost his ride at Red
Bull Racing for next season, and it's not clear if the team will
let him finish out the final eight races of the current campaign.
Allmendinger is in his second year driving the Number 84 Toyota
and Red Bull opted not to renew his contract for a third season.
The team also pulled him from the car for the two-day test session
that began today at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
Mike Skinner is testing the car in Allmendinger's place.
Allmendinger is still listed on the entry sheet for this weekend's
race at Kansas Speedway.
Allmendinger, meanwhile, is believed to be a candidate to
replace Reed Sorenson in the Number 41 for Chip Ganassi Racing. Sorenson is moving on to Gillett Evernham Motorsports next year.
