Crewmember Suspended For Substance Abuse Violation

Eric Maycroft, front tire changer on Martin Truex Jr.’s No. 56 Toyota at Michael Waltrip Racing, has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body’s Substance Abuse Policy.  

On Aug. 16, Maycroft was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (violation of the NASCAR Substance Abuse Policy) of the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book. 

Michael Waltrip Racing issued a statement this afternoon, saying, “Michael Waltrip Racing fully supports NASCAR's substance abuse policies and those who complete the Road to Recovery program. MWR’s zero tolerance policy has resulted in the immediate termination of the employee.”
