   AJ Allmendinger is insisting on his innocence in the NASCAR drug testing case that sidelined him last weekend at Daytona and will keep him on the sidelines this weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, during a NASCAR suspension.
   The Roger Penske driver issued a second statement Wednesday, though spokesman Tara Ragan:
    "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.
    "AJ and all of us at Walldinger Racing respect NASCAR's testing program, and he has requested that his "B" sample be tested as part of the process of getting to the bottom of this.
    "We will have the opportunity to review all of the scientific data surrounding the test following the "B" sample test, but our understanding is that AJ's test was slightly above the threshold.
    "As of this morning, we have not been given notice of when the testing of the 'B' sample will take place.
    "Thanks again for all of the support of our fans, team, and sponsors as we continue working through the process."
