|Nationwide Crew Member Suspended
|DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR has suspended a Nationwide Series crew member for violating its toughened substance abuse policy.
Robert Good, a crew member for the No. 26 Dodge team owned by Dusty Whitney, was suspended indefinitely on Tuesday. He committed the violation on October 9th. Driver Michael McDowell piloted the No. 26 to a 32nd place finish in last weekend's race at Auto Club Speedway.
The No. 26 car is currently 31st in the owner's standings heading into Friday's race at Lowe's Motor Speedway.
NASCAR has suspended 11 crew members this season. Jeremy Mayfield is the only driver to be suspended since NASCAR began random testing this year.
