CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Suspended NASCAR driver AJ Allmendinger says he tested positive for a prescription drug typically used to treat attention deficit disorder.
Allmendinger said in an interview with ESPN that he took Adderall a couple of days before the race at Kentucky Speedway on June 30 because he was tired. He does not have ADHD or a prescription for the drug.
He says a friend gave him the pill and said it was a workout supplement that would give him energy.
Two days later he was randomly tested at the racetrack.
