NASCAR indefinitely suspends crewman for substance-abuse violation

BY Jared Turner • December 18, 2014

Marshal Faust, a crew member in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, has been indefinitely suspended from NASCAR for violating the sanctioning body's Substance Abuse Policy.
NASCAR announced Thursday that on Dec. 12, Faust 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 2014 NASCAR Rule Book.

Faust, who worked as a shop mechanic and rear tire changer on Red Horse Racing's No. 17 Camping World Truck Series team of Timothy Peters, has been released by the organization.

Faust was also suspended by NASCAR and subsequently fired by Red Horse for a substance abuse violation on Oct. 10, 2013.

The Sebring, Fla., native was reinstated on Dec. 17, 2013, upon his successful completion of NASCAR's Substance Abuse Policy Road to Recovery Program.

Red Horse then re-hired Faust ahead of the 2014 NASCAR season.
