NASCAR has reinstated suspended XFINITY Series driver Spencer Gallagher after completing the road to recovery program. Gallagher was suspended in April for a substance abuse violation after winning his first career race at Talladega Superspeedway.

“The whole GMS organization is very proud of Spencer for getting reinstated after completing NASCAR’s Road to Recovery program after the results we received post-Talladega,” GMS Racing president Mike Beam said in a release.

Gallagher is expected to run to the seat of his No. 23 Allegiant Airlines Chevrolet at Kentucky Speedway next weekend. Chase Elliott is driving the car this weekend at Daytona International Speedway. Elliott has one more scheduled start at Bristol Motor Speedway in August.
