And that is just what Kevin Harvick did.
Like NASCAR, Harvick's own race team, Kevin Harvick Inc. (KHI) really had no testing policy of its own, until now. KHI’s Nationwide and Craftsman Truck Series drivers and crew chiefs have been tested, and an independent testing company has been hired to test the rest of the company.
"I’m proud that we went home (after Phoenix) and made ours right," Harvick said. "We’re considered a drug-free environment at KHI. … Hopefully everyone will follow suit, and I think it would be good for our garage."
Kevin also went on to say that he wished that every team in NASCAR would do the same and that NASCAR could introduce required drug testing for every yearly garage pass (hard card) it hands out.
"Have an outside source come in and randomly drug test the teams as they submit their approvals for a hard card. You send your drug test [paperwork] with it, and that would make it a lot easier on NASCAR."
In other words, "You want in the garage area? Then pee in a cup please. Thank you."
But Harvick didn't stop there, he also suggested one other thing. Something that I've always thought should be done, but has never been done.
"If you wreck or something and you have to go through the infield care center, it should be just standard procedure to take a drug test even if you've been through there 10 times in 10 weeks," Harvick said. "I think that would fix a lot of the questions that we have and be a pretty simple solution."
I'm all for it.
