CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Suspended NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger has elected to bring his own experts to the testing of his "B" urine sample, The Associated Press has learned.
Under NASCAR's drug testing policy, an individual can bring in experts for the second test and Allmendinger wants his own toxicologist and attorney present, two people familiar with the case told the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because the process is confidential.
Because Allmendinger is bringing his own people, the test of the sample will not occur until next week.
Allmendinger has the right to take the time needed to assemble his team of experts.
Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR on Saturday for failing a random drug test taken June 29.
