He didn't want to have his viagra show up on his drug test. You know that's what makes him " hard to beat !"

Well, he was able to get around taking the test at Eldora a week or so back and got $100K out of it. Very interesting.

I think all the drivers should refuse the test.  Total bullshit!  Nazi policy imo.

So you would be ok racing with other drivers,that are high and on drugs?  Its no different then most jobs today.. i had to take a drug test before i was hired and now have random testing.

Godwin's Law in this thread.

Yes, that is what the Nazis are most known for -- making dirt track drivers piss in a cup.

Who says the other drivers are high and on drugs?  Is there probably cause? Most employers do not drug test. Especially government employers.  I would be more concerned with the caffeine overload from all the coffee. Also very concerned racing against overweight drivers who have slow reaction times. They should consider weighing drivers and taking BMI numbers. Anybody  who is over the limit should not get behind the wheel and jeopardize the safety of themselves and other drivers.

You may want to do some research on Authoritarianism and Totalitarianism and relate it to pissing in a cup. Maybe then, you will understand where I am coming from.

No, I don't understand where you are comparing from. Making dirt track drivers take a drug test and starving, electrocuting, gassing and shooting  six millions Jews is not at all comparable. If you think those two things are remotely similar, I don't know what to tell you.

As mentioned earlier, nearly any semi-decent job out there requires a drug test.

Im not talking about killing jews and you are incorrect on the drug testing.  Do your homework and you will see that I am right.

So you're more concerned about someone in the infield wearing shorts than drug testing? Epic.

We had a big problem in the 80's with pro stock drivers in southern New England and drugs. One got arrested in the parking lot for making a deal in the parking lot after the races.

It really doesn't matter what your opinion is as far what you feel should or shouldn't be tested. 

Rules are rules and this one wasn't just sprung on them last week. He and every other driver knew them going in.

It was his choice in all aspects of this, whether or not to enter the event/series or whether or not to take drugs that are illegal in the opinions of those making the rules...

Because clearly you're a political/history major. Lmao you guys crack me up when it comes to the political bs you throw around on here. I've had 4 jobs, 3 where at retail places when I was in school and all of them drug tested.

15 other drivers not only took the test, but passed. I’m a big Bloomquist fan, but to act like they singled him out after he dodged a test 2 weeks ago is silly.

And Ive had 3 jobs too... a police officer, a teacher and a mayor of a local township and was never required to take a drug test for any of them. So you guys need to do your homework before you spew inaccurate information. Know the facts before you post!
