    Darrow Suspended Over NASCAR Policy
    October 06, 2005 10:49 AM EDT
    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - NASCAR on Thursday suspended crew chief Glenn Darrow indefinitely for violating its substance abuse policy.

    Darrow, crew chief for Tony Raines' Nextel Cup car, was tested for banned substances last Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway. The results were positive, leading to an automatic suspension.

    NASCAR did not identify the substance and several series officials did not immediately return phone messages left Thursday.

    Darrow becomes the second person suspended by NASCAR this season for failing a substance abuse test.

    Busch Series regular Shane Hmiel will not be allowed to return to NASCAR before 2007 after failing a test earlier this season. It is Hmiel's second suspension - he also failed a test in September 2003.

    NASCAR's substance abuse policy, based on "reasonable suspicion," allows the sanctioning organization to broadly administer tests anytime, anywhere.

    well i commend them for keeping it clean. i sure don't want to see nascar going the direction of nfl and nba with someone caught with drugs or involved with a drug related shooting every couple weeks. i really think it should be ones personal buisness on their own time but when your talking the safety of motorsports it should be this way.

    Yes it is, and I for one applaud Nascar for doing it.
