A.J Allmendinger, who was suspended for a positive A sample test
just hours before the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona, will have his “B” Sample tested July 24. Allmendinger’s toxicologist will be present at the test.
Since the news of A.J’s positive “A” sample test, he has missed both the race at Daytona and New Hampshire.

“We now have a confirmed date for the testing of AJ’s “B” (split specimen) Sample. The test will take place on Tuesday, July 24 at 8 a.m. CDT and be conducted at the Aegis Analytical Laboratories in Nashville. Pursuant to the 2012 NASCAR Rulebook and in line with the procedures, we have elected to have a designated independent toxicologist present on AJ’s behalf. Along with everyone else, we are looking forward to hearing the results as quickly as possible. AJ and all of us at Walldinger Racing have truly appreciated the outpouring of support from our fans, partners, and colleagues. It has meant a lot to us during this difficult time. We are also grateful to Mr. Penske and his management team for their patience and respect of the process we are going through.”
