NASCAR has announced that this coming year they will be testing 12-15 crew members randomly at each race, while this is a good thing is it the right thing?
NASCAR recently has had its share of drug issues with Arron Fike and his girlfriend getting busted for having heroin, but he is not exactly a household name. NASCAR needs to address the issue with the drivers too. this new memo from NASCAR only addresses the crews, the ones who work on the cars, now I agree with this completely and I think it is long over due, but from the looks of the list they say they will be testing for they are testing for olympic athletes not race crews.
Rusty Wallace and Kevin Harvick have both spoken out on this and it needs a closer look. These drivers need to be checked each and every time they get in a car, why have each driver “pee in a bottle” when they arrive at the track and by race time they can have a results? No way ….. NASCAR will not inpune these drivers like that, they will infringe on the cash cow that NASCAR has going…..
Brian France needs to step up and let the chips land where they may. Drug test everyone in NASCAR from the top breass all the way down to the drivers, if they are fgoing to do it….. then do it. Don’t half step, test them all officials, drivers ,flagmen, NASCAR president, everybody!
Taking this way out NASCAR can stand back and say “well that one must of slipped thru the cracks”, that isn’t going to get it. Test them all. Or don’t test any of them.
We may see some good raing this year who knows.
