As usual, NA$CAR is slow to make changes, but at least it sounds like they've had to react to driver and fan demand for a change in their drug testing policy.  I guess they'll be "studying" it for a while though.  From Jayski:

"NASCAR appoints panel to look into changing drug-testing policy: NASCAR president Brian France has appointed a group of company officials to an interim committee that will study the sport's drug policy, vice president of communications Jim Hunter said Friday. The group, whose members Hunter said have "been around a long time and know the sport," will report back to France with any recommendations "within six weeks or so." Among the topics they will survey, Hunter said, is whether or not to add a staff substance abuse expert and whether or not random testing should be implemented. Currently, drivers are drug tested only under "reasonable suspicion." Any change to the policy, Hunter said, wouldn't likely take place until the 2009 season.(ESPN.com)(5-3-2008)"

Kevin Harvick isn't waiting for NASCAR's study to be completed.  He has already started random drug testing for all of his employees.

They talked to Kevin last week (Wednesday, I believe) on Nascar Now so makes one wonder if that was the straw that put Nascar into action.
