Sieg Suspended For Violation Of Drug Policy

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Shane Sieg was suspended indefinitely suspended from NASCAR today for violating Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (violation of the substance abuse policy) of the 2011 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rule book.

Sieg is currently ranked 24th in the Truck Series championship standings, after competing in 12 of the 15 events so far this season. He did not compete Saturday at Michigan, with driver Casey Roderick driving the #93 Chevrolet usually driven by Sieg to a 29th place finish. Sieg, the older brother of fellow NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Ryan Sieg, has not commented on his suspension.

NASCAR also reinstated NASCAR Nationwide Series crew member Denise Harmon-Mixon following successful completion of NASCAR’s Road to Recovery Program. Harmon-Mixon was suspended July 5 for violating the sanctioning body’s Substance Abuse Policy.
