BOBBY LABONTE COMMENTS ON NEW NASCAR DRUG TESTING POLICY

"NASCAR has taken a lot of steps to elevate our sport to the level of the "Big Four" leagues. We've entered new markets. We draw hundreds of thousands of fans each weekend. So it's time that we police ourselves as one of the biggest sports leagues in the country.

"The new drug policy is another step in the evolution of NASCAR and the safety of the sport. Make no mistake, what we do is dangerous. We need to make certain that the competitors are clean when they hit the racetrack. NASCAR did a great job in outlining the rules, what is legal and illegal, and it's up to the drivers and their doctors to make sure they are within the guidelines."
