NASCAR announced today that two former crew members have been reinstated into the sport after completing NASCAR’s Substance Abuse Policy “Road To Recovery” program.
Ryan Hess, who worked in the Nationwide Series, and Curtis Martin Jr., who worked in the Camping World Truck Series, were both found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (violation of the NASCAR substance abuse policy) of the NASCAR rule book last season.
Hess’ suspension on June 18, 2013 came after failing a random drug test for the second time in a 10-month span.
His first suspension came on August 22, 2012 but after completing the recovery program, he was reinstated that December.
Martin was suspended on Nov. 19, 2013.
