NASCAR has reinstated the eligibility of Frank W. Earnhardt after Earnhardt’s successful completion of NASCAR’s Road to Recovery Program, according to an announcement Wednesday from NASCAR. Earnhardt was indefinitely suspended from NASCAR competition on May 14, 2013, because of a failed random drug test. In its original penalty announcement, the racing sanctioning body cited violations of sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (NASCAR Substance Abuse Policy) of the NASCAR rule book.
Earnhardt was working as a crew member on an unidentified NASCAR Nationwide (now-Xfinity) Series team at the time of his suspension. In 2011, he served as a crew chief for driver/owner Morgan Shepherd for one race of Nationwide competition, according to a report from FOX Sports. Also, Earnhardt previously worked in NASCAR as a hauler driver.
