Allmendinger bringing experts to test

People familiar with AJ Allmendinger's suspension say the NASCAR driver has elected to bring his own experts to witness the testing of his "B'' urine sample.
   
Allmendinger was suspended by NASCAR on Saturday for failing a random drug test. He has said he tested positive for a stimulant he did not reveal, and has insisted he never "knowingly" took a banned substance.
   
Under NASCAR's drug policy, an individual can bring in experts for the second test.
   
Two people familiar with the case told The Associated Press that Allmendinger has chosen to bring a toxicologist and an attorney. They spoke 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.
