Charlotte, North Carolina – Former crew chief Todd Parrott has been fired by Richard Petty Motorsports after a failed drug test. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Parrott was stated to have violated NASCAR’s substance abuse policy after failing the random drug test.
Petty is quoted by the AP as stating while making an appearance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Tuesday, “Circumstances beyond our control…It was just an automatic. What he did was what he did. All we did was say, ‘This is the way it’s going to be.’ It’s definitely zero tolerance. These guys (the drivers) are putting their life on the line, the guys on pit road are putting their life on the line, so 100 percent ain’t good enough, OK?’”
Parrott was formerly the crew chief for Hall of Fame driver Dale Jarrett.
