EXACTLY and they know it and some of these guys have won these races and at the very least are late rounders at most events.

i just dont see what drugs these guys could possibly take to make them that much better..
alchohol i just cant believe will improve someones driving skills
weed may have a calming affect but cant believe it would improve skills tremndously
adderal ..this one could have some effects on focus but can it possibly improve skills in a huge way?
then propranol i can see helping someone if they get extremely nervous..but wont help an average racer?
i dont see any drugs that could turn someone into a super racer

I liken it to ARod. Without roids he was going to be one of the best to ever play the game and with the roids he became a superstar.

Let's take the next step on this journey....How much has selling illegal substances funded racing operations?

The attention type drugs could certainly be an advantage with a very long race day.

Eman, not as much now as there used to be. Seems most pharmaceutical salesmen have heads-up cars.

I'll put you on the spot (1320) since I have nothing to lose!

Put the names out there of the performance enhancing pill poppers,the marijuana smokers, the alcohol drinkers,....

You seem to know so much.

Put it out there if you know so much about this topic!

In fair reporting, I haven't raced since 2018 in a borrowed car and stunk it up.
My own car is a cut up SBC small tired car that I've never got to the winner's circle.

Ps I'm average on my best day, just like 1320.
I should have bought the elite at luke's site but probably wouldn't be able to utilize it.

OK GO!



Cool

Anybody who witnesses racers using drugs or alcohol during a race and doesn’t speak up is just as guilty as the user is.

I rememeber a bunch of years back i was in the final of a bracket race.At the top of the lanes was my competitors car but he was nohwere to be found.they kept announcing over the speakers for the driver to get to his car.A few minutes later he comes running out of the beer tent.he and the track manager where having beers together.he gets in his car and puts me on the trailer.heads back to the beer tent with the track manager.

This was the same track/team that september we all went to the bracket finals at maplegrove.The team had a huge party the night before our race and 7 of our guys in super pro and 3 of our guys in pro where passed out and never made it to first round. we are talking 10 to 12 hour tow to get there

Most of these “drugs” aren’t illegal.

Didn’t happen to me when I turned in a guy at Norwalk. The dumb fools let him run and it was everything he had to keep the car off the wall. It was only test and tune but this kinda **** is what drives up the cost of insurance.

So let me get this straight, you want promoters to drug test when they dont enforce any kind of safety rules or any kind of tech on cars until late in the rounds.......
