And so we have it folks, the mystery substance is revealed. Should we be shocked?

Everyone has heard of the other two substances, Adderall and Claritin-D. Everybody has heard Dr. David Black say that it could not result in a positive drug test. Everybody has heard Brian France and all of the other NASCAR big wigs back up Dr. Black.

Yet the two main substances in these drugs can be combined to form Meth. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to make it. That is why our country has a big problem with it.

And how could someone who passed a preseason drug test (with so much on the line) start a drug habit after he was the first one to lose a team member.

In conclusion, this seems to me as an open-close case for the courts. If it had been any other drug he had tested positive for I would have retracted my statement made in previous articles.

He just took the wrong combination of drugs at the wrong time!
