NASCAR driver suspended for drug violation at Richmond

9 05 2009

NASCAR will announce at 6 p.m. today that a driver has been suspended for a violation of NASCAR’s drug testing policy. If the driver is a Sprint Cup series driver, it will be the first such suspension under NASCAR’s new drug testing policy.

The Southern 500 begins this evening at 7:20 p.m.

The Charlotte Observer reported that the driver was in fact a Sprint Cup driver and his suspension came from results taken at Richmond International Raceway.

I’m off to the drivers’ meeting, I’ll have more as I get it. One driver I can throw out is Reed Sorenson. His name kept popping up, so I asked a Richard Petty Motorsports spokesman who said, as I walked up to him, “We’re clean.”
