Date set for Allmendinger's 2nd drug test
posted Jul 17 2012 1:33PM
Allmendinger has elected to bring his own experts to the testing of his "B" sample, which will take place July 24 at a lab in Nashville, Tenn. He was suspended July 7, hours before a race at Daytona, for failing a random drug test taken June 29.
The substance has not been identified by NASCAR or Allmendinger, though he has said it was a stimulant. He has denied knowingly taking a banned substance.
NASCAR allows drivers to bring their own experts for the second test and Allmendinger wants his own toxicologist and attorney present.
The 30-year-old Allmendinger is the second Sprint Cup Series driver to be suspended under the NASCAR drug policy implemented in 2009.
