I doubt he's allowed to disclose it. As for how it got there and in that amount - I believe that investigation is still ongoing.WRC3 championship, WRC4 championship, WRC4 PCWRC, WRC4 ERC

AJ Allmendinger positive for AdderallCHARLOTTE, N.C. -- AJ Allmendinger tested positive for prescription Adderall, the suspended NASCAR driver told ESPN in an exclusive interview Tuesday.
Adderall is typically prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Allmendinger said. He does not have ADHD and therefore had no prescription.
He explained that he had been out in Louisville, Ky., the Wednesday before the Quaker State 400 race at Kentucky Speedway and was tired.

I have absolutely ZERO sympathy for AJ. Any fool that would take a random pill from a friend has to be one of the dumbest tools out there. He shouldnt be allowed to walk down the street by himself let alone drive a car at 200mph.
I do wonder though, how often are drivers "randomly" tested? Could this have been a setup by someone, or did someone know/see AJ take something which prompted a phone call to NASCAR and a subsequent test? I dont know if there is any merit to that theory...
In the end, he deserved what he got for being so fracking stupid. If AJ considers himself an athlete like many professional drivers do then he never would have taken some random pill.I'm old enough that I don't have to put up with your crap anymore.

"I doubt he's allowed to disclose it."
Of course he is "allowed" to disclose it and finally did. Adderall is a drug I would expect a race car driver to take if he is trying to cheat. It significantly enhances your concentration and focus. Basically, it puts you "in the zone." His story is not believable. I think he would have been better off if he just admitted he took it to try to enhance is performance. Its not like he tok meth or cocaine or something.

I think he ought to start courting Shire Parmaceuticals for sponsorship when he completes the program.

Not even 12 months and another driver has got to go and needs to find another driver.The world according to Taki Inoue: https://mobile.twitter.com/takiinoue/status/301406167249326080

AJ Allmendinger's defense disputedCHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It is highly unlikely that AJ Allmendinger's positive test for amphetamines resulted from a single pill taken one time, as the suspended Sprint Cup driver recently stated, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com.

NASCAR has re-instated AJ.
I wonder about the status of his FIA license.The secret to winning races: More Throttle, Less Brake.

He was Penske's guest at Fontana Saturday night. Some are saying he might still end up being a Penske employee.¿Quién es el que anda aquí?
