Out of maybe 60 drivers....how stupid do you have to be to not think your number will come up regularly in a random test scenario?

I think it's pretty evident that whatever he got busted for was not a performance enhancing drug

Eh. He had finished in the top ten his last two races.

Amazing how many NASCAR drivers have been busted for pot.

My driving days were long before drug tests, but I drove Figure 8, and if I hadn't been stoned, I never would have gotten in that damned car

What kind of drug do you need to enhance your ability to do nothing but turn left? Democraphetamine?

I like to think of Days of Thunder being a movie about Robert Duvall's character. It's much more interesting that way.

Um, do you want some gut that is behind the wheel of a car doing 180+ on meth, coke, or any other type of drug. The really scary one was the guy that was busted for heroin and admitted to using it on race day. How in the hell does somebody do that, or his team let him do that?

By the way, if this was an NBA thread talking about substance abuse among players, you know it would be filled with 300+ post by now from Fark's stormfront contingent.

There's a chance.. just a chance, mind you... that you're taking my comment just a little too seriously

/and as an aside, the only guy I'd ever trust racing next to me at 180 MPH (assuming I could ever do that) is Richard Farking Petty

Do they mention that NASCAR falsified his drug test results?

Yes, they really did that.

And yes, Timmy was the best. The farking best.

Felt bad for Mayfield up till he went psycho at the end. He got a raw deal from Evernham and his fans, even though he was part of the team's success. He really screwed it up at the end though.

Grubb and Richmond were sad stories. Hmiel's recovery is actually pretty inspiring. Tyler Walker just got suspended from the World of Outlaws for trying to fight with race officials.

Just remember kids, drugs are bad mmkay?

I don't think Hmeil has raced since a very nasty sprint car wreck last year.

Walkers epic outburst is on ewetubercle.

Nah, not gay. He just chose the wrong era to be into unprotected sex, like Magic.

But yeah, those drug suspensions of his were bogus.

Can't stand AJ Allmendinger from his days at ChampCar. He was an arrogant asshole then and him getting busted is nothing but music to my ears now.

That assbag was basically deemed by the CART powers-that-be to be the future "guy" they would do their best to promote. Even though he was a whiny little biatch, they still basically coddled him. Then he got an offer from CRASHCAR and basically left ChampCar high and dry.

Have wished him nothing but failure for his career from that point on.

/misses CART/CHAMPCAR
//Open-wheel racing in the USA won't be the same. Ever.

According to TFA, he's paralyzed from said link.

And apparently, Tyler Walker has turned into everybody's stoner redneck cousin with the chin-length dreds, from the looks of that video. How he'll be racing after this contract is beyond me....
 
2012-07-08 11:34:55 AM
Well obviously they had to suspend him. It was either that or rename the race to the Coke > Zero.

Tim Richmond was definitely not gay, as said above. He was known for being quite the ladies' man, and that lifestyle caught up with him. At the time, given the stigma associated with AIDS, that assumption was easy to make.

Richmond avoided the drug tests because they would have revealed that he was taking drugs to cope with HIV. Amazing that a few years later, Magic would admit to being HIV-positive and would manage to fight it pretty well.

Sammy Potashnick, I seem to recall, was on the wrong end of a bad deal. The drugs were found in a rental car, and there was speculation they weren't even his. I want to say he was cleared of wrongdoing, but I can't recall for sure, and it surely stifled his career hopes.

I remember seeing a bunch of the women Richmond infected on a talk show after he died. Although he knew he was infected, he continued to have unprotected sex. Although he was the epitome of cool and an amazing driver, I struggle to think well of him because of this. Sad story all around...
