I didn't read that but I say as long as they aren't impaired at the track they should be able to do whatever they want at home.


edit. APPARENTLY they were using at the track...if so then that's different.

Well and from what I understand is that the drivers are tested right there at the track.

i was a safety tech for several years at a dirt track---WE HAD ONE VERY STRONG RULE---YOU GET CAUGHT DRINKING OR USING DRUGS AT THE TRACK OR SHOW UP THAT WAY- ops: ops: -AND YOU WERE BANNED FOR THE SEASON--PLAIN, SIMPLE, AND NO ARGUING ABOUT IT- 8) 8) --

I ONLY HAD TO REMOVE 4 GUYS IN 5 YEARS :wink: :wink:

thanks signs , its been a rough two years for them, he was a good guy. I agree with nhra on this one. every driver or rider owes it to the person in the other lane and people in the stands not to be under the influence and jeopardize there safety. at that level there of hundreds of riders that would take his place.

I'll never understand why anyone would drink and drive any kind of race vehicle or any vehicle for that matter.
0 tolerance is the best policy. As far as any illegal drug, it's not worth loosing your job, family etc for it.

I think they are getting some of these guys on drug tests, NOT catching them under the influence at the event.

well boys if they are drinking or dopin at the track or show up under the influencei agree show them out but if a guy smokes a joint at home on thursday and shows up sat. to race should he be sent packin?depending what drug test he takes that one joint can show up for over a month.i agree with tod on this one what a man does on his own timeis up to him. they have taken these drug tests way to far. there are a couple of companies here that give out these tests and check for booze.dont drink that beer and friday nites or sat. nites because if they find it more than a few times your going to rehab.i have a friend who loves his beer. fri nites its a few in the shop, EVERY sat. nite its cook out time (beer included). sunday hes a goodboy.mondays hes given a test and bang, hes in rehab to keep his job.in all the years ive known him i only saw him drunk a couple of times and thats because i talked him into drinkin moonshine with me.
