Kevin Grubb Tests NASCAR’s Drug Policy

Following the September 8th Busch Series race at Richmond International Raceway, driver Kevin Grubb refused a random drug test request, resulting in a suspension for an indefinite period of time by NASCAR. In doing so, the 28-year old Mechanicsville, Va. native may have effectively ended his career as a stock car driver within the sanctioning body, despite the controversy surrounding his latest suspension.

What Jeff Burton or Mark Martin may or may not do in the coming weeks is irrelevant. They're in the Chase because they took care of business the first 26 weeks and Stewart didn't; end of story. If I had to guess, you've probably got a "20" decal on your vehicle, and while I can sympathize with you from a fan standpoint, everyone knows the rules and every driver knows what they have to do. Stewart just didn't do it.

Becca’s Big 6: 2006 Chevy Rock ‘N’ Roll 400 at Richmond Edition

At the end of 2005, Dale Jr. apologized to his fans for a disappointing season, and promised to give them something to cheer about this year. A man of his word, Junior is sixth heading into the Chase, and would likely be higher in the standings if not for back-to-back last place finishes at Loudon and Pocono.
