Penske to get Allmendinger’s drug test results by Thursday

A.J. Allmendinger's test results on his "B Sample" will be known within 24-48 hours after Tuesday's test, according to Bud Denker, Senior Vice President of Penske Corporation. Denker is in Edmonton for Sunday's IZOD IndyCar Series Edmonton Indy and confirmed that the second test for the suspended NASCAR Sprint Cup driver of the #22 Shell/Pennzoil Dodge will be known prior to next Saturday's first practice session for the Crown Royal at the Brickyard at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Denker, who said neither NASCAR nor Allmendinger have notified the team of what substance was found in Allmendinger's initial test, expects to have the results of Allmendinger's B Sample either late Wednesday or on Thursday. Team owner Roger Penske and Team Penske President Tim Cindric have both said if Allmendinger passes the B Sample test he will immediately be reinstated to the #22 Dodge. If Allmendinger's second drug test comes back positive, then he will be suspended indefinitely by NASCAR.
