Michael Waltrip Racing fires crew member suspended by NASCAR for failing random drug test

NASCAR has suspended two crew members for failing random drug tests.

One of the two suspensions issued Tuesday was to Lee Dodson, a mechanic on Clint Bowyer's car. Michael Waltrip Racing fired Dodson upon learning he'd failed a drug test.

The other suspension was issued to Frank Earnhardt, who NASCAR identified only as a crew member for a Nationwide Series team.

JR Motorsports said Earnhardt did not work for its organization, and a spokesman said the crew member was not believed to be a member of the extended Earnhardt family.

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