Bayley Currey has been reinstated by NASCAR after successfully completing its Road to Recovery program, NASCAR announced Wednesday (Sept 18).
Currey was suspended on Aug. 15 after he failed a drug test before the races at Bristol Motor Speedway. The substance was from a pre-workout supplement, according to Currey.
“I was obviously not aware that I was violating NASCAR’s Substance Abuse Policy,” Currey said at the time. “I have immediately asked NASCAR to enter me into the Road to Recovery Program where I will gain more knowledge about such banned supplements and I will fully cooperate with NASCAR‘s direction and advice.”
Currey drove in nine Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts this year for Rick Ware Racing prior to the suspension.
He has also competed in 19 Xfinity and Gander Outdoors Truck series events and has a career-best finish of ninth place at Michigan International Speedway in the Truck Series this year.
Currey’s plans for the rest of the season have not yet been announced.
