A spokesperson for suspended Sprint Cup Series driver AJ Allmendinger has confirmed July 24 as the date for testing of his "B" urine sample.
The statement from Tara Ragan, vice president of Walldinger Racing, Inc., which appeared on the driver's website, reads as follows:
“We now have a confirmed date for the testing of AJ’s 'B' (split specimen) sample. (It) will take place Tuesday, July 24, at 8 a.m. CDT and be conducted at the Aegis Analytical Laboratories in Nashville. Pursuant to the 2012 NASCAR Rule Book 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.”
Allmendinger was suspended July 7 after testing positive for what Ragan later confirmed was a stimulant. Sam Hornish Jr. has driven the No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge in the two races since.
