A three-person NHRA Review Panel has modified the NHRA’s action against Top Fuel driver Mike Strasburg, who was fined and suspended under its drug and alcohol testing policy. Strasburg was notified of the NHRA Review Panel’s decision in a letter dated July 6, 2011.
Strasburg originally was suspended for one year and fined $2,500 for not complying with NHRA’s drug and alcohol testing policy at the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals in Las Vegas earlier this year.
The suspension was reduced until the 2011 FRAM-Autolite NHRA Nationals, July 29-31. However, the initial fine was upheld, and Strasburg will be required to pay the fine before he will be allowed to participate in future NHRA events.
