NASCAR suspends two pit crew members for failed drug tests

Posted: Updated:

NASCAR has suspended a pair of crew members for failing drug tests.

Lee Dodson, who works as a mechanic on Clint Bowyer's team, and Frank Earnhardt were suspended on Tuesday. NASCAR identified Earnhardt only as a crew member for a Nationwide Series team.

Bowyer drives for Michael Waltrip Racing, who announced it would cut ties with Dodson after his positive drug test.

Anyone suspended for failing a NASCAR drug test must complete the "Road to Recovery" program before they are eligible for reinstatement.
