RISKY BUSINESS: SI.com’s Cary Estes wrote the "bigger obstacle” in the potential return of suspended NASCAR driver A.J. Allmendinger may not be finding a team but "convincing sponsors to financially support a car driven by Allmendinger.” Most sponsors "flee from controversy,” and Allmendinger's on-track record “certainly does not help his cause -- he is winless in 169 Sprint Cup starts.” Sponsors “might forgive a mistake made by an established winner, but they have no desire to attach their name to a tainted driver who has yet to prove he is worth the gamble” (SI.com, 9/20).
