Nascar has no tolerance

Postby Sixxgunn » Fri Jun 03, 2005 8:44 am

NASCAR driver Shane Hmiel was suspended indefinitely for testing positive for the second time against the illegal substance policy. I know NASCAR isn't a big deal in here, but the point I'm trying to make is that other sports should take example from this and stop coddling these overgrown babies. NASCAR now has the choice to allow him back after 1 race, or never again. I think that might make some people think twice.

That will be interesting to see how they handle it.

I wonder how they would handle it if it was one of their biggest draws? Not that I know anything about NASCAR really, but if he was who their fans come to see something tells me he would be back sooner than later.

But I do like the no tolerance type policy.

We're assuming this is a drug right? Or perhaps he was taking steroids to uh......make his foot heavier?

He doesn't. But he's still considered a role-model, an ambassador for the sport. That's why these guys should think twice before using stuff like that.

Actually, it wasn't mentioned what the actual substance was that was abused. It is very possible it could be a steroid of some type because driving a 3800 lb car in a circle while going nearly 200 mph for 3 hours can really be a physically exhausting experience, and he may have thought he needed some performance enhancers to keep himself going.

Exactly. Not all steroids make you buff. Look at Luis Castillo, he used them to help an injury heal up. I dont pretend to be an expert, but Im pretty sure you can get steroids to help you with a variety of different things.

It reminds me sort of Todd Sauerbrun usign them. He had no need to either, but he used them and got in trouble.

It is more likely to be amphetamines. We use those to keep our soldiers awake for extended amounts of time.
