A crew member for a Nationwide Series team has become the second person suspended this season under NASCAR's stricter new substance abuse policy.
John Boyd, a crew member for the No. 23 team of R3 Motorsports, failed a random drug test on March 9. He was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR on Wednesday, and his race team said he's no longer with the organization.
The team fielded a car for McKinney, Texas, native Robert Richardson at Daytona, and Ken Butler at California and Las Vegas.
A crew member for Jeremy Mayfield's team was suspended last month following a failed drug test before the season-opening Daytona 500. Paul Chodora's test was part of the mandatory preseason testing implemented at the start of this year.
