AJ Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR last Saturday after failing a random drug test and according to a statement released Wednesday, that substance was a stimulant. He has since requested that the ‘B’ sample, which was taken at the same time, be tested as well.

Wednesday, Tara Ragan, who is the VP of Walldinger Racing Incorporated , which is owned by Allmendinger, released a statement.

“In an effort to help our colleagues in the media report on this in a timely and accurate manner, we wanted to provide some additional details regarding AJ’s sample “A” test results. AJ tested positive for a stimulant. He has no idea why the first test was positive, and he has never knowingly taken any prohibited substance. AJ is collecting his medicines and supplements for testing to determine whether an over the counter product caused his positive test. MORE>>>
