    This is Your Brain on NASCAR

    fike.jpgIn the news this week was the relation by former NASCAR Craftsman Truck series driver Aaron Fike admitted to using heroin on race day. Fike (2006 photo) has been on indefinite suspension from NASCAR since 2006 after being arrested in Ohio on felony drug charges, which have since been plea-bargained down. NASCAR officials first became suspicious of Fike at Nashville Superspeedway, when he pulled into his pit box on Lap 35, climbed on the roof of his car, stripped down to his underwear, and clucked like a chicken. When questioned by reporters on how difficult it was to drive a race car while flipping out on smack, Fike replied, “It was, like, WOW. You know, it was totally, like, like, WOW, man. Dude, like, it was total rush, like, WOW.” Naturally, other NASCAR drivers are freaking out about the possibility of driving next to a stone-head, with drivers such as Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart voicing their desire for a stronger drug-testing policy. Jimmie Johnson initially had some reservations to stronger testing requirements until it was confirmed that Pamprin was not on the list of NASCAR’s controlled substances. Fike, who says his 2006 arrest probably saved his life, is hoping to eventually win reinstatement with NASCAR and drive competitively, and if he should rumor has it the makers of Narco-ette are interested in a full sponsorship. (OK, I made some of this stuff up…)
