NASCAR reinstates Fike, 5 years after suspension
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR has reinstated Aaron Fike, the Truck Series driver who was suspended in 2007 following an arrest on drug charges.
NASCAR announced the news Tuesday in a two-sentence statement, saying Fike has completed the stock car racing governing body's substance abuse road to recovery program.
NASCAR strengthened its drug policy in 2008, in part because of Fike's admission that he had used heroin - even on days he raced.
