clearly NASCAR didn't expect him to test positive or they would have rushed the testing so they could have banned him earlier in the week and the results weren't part of the media story at a France-owned facility.

Yup, hard to say. I read thru their policy, there's some stuff in there that they can't take even with a prescription. He knew the rules though, no excuse.

Maybe the late banning is part of the NASCAR game? Makes for some drama at a race that has an entirely empty back stretch grandstand.
