Just heard on Claire B. Lang's Dialed In on XM that Tyler Walker has ,imagine this, tested positive and has been suspended from Nascar for violating their substance abuse policy. Imagine the press release will be posted soon.

My how times have changed. 35 years ago Tyler would have been sporting long hair and sandals, kicking *ss on the establishment (USAC), been referred to as an "outlaw" and future legend. Today we want to crucify him. Did I miss something? When did the party end wink

StanM I hear ya, but I guess you have to fit the corporate cookie-cutter mold to be in Nascar land.

Tyler is really talented and fun to watch, but he did kind of blow it here.

Maybe he will come back to the Sprint Car world now.

We're not even sure what he's into but I'm pretty sure it's not muscle building steroids.

You can't put down Tyler Walker, remember, his former crew chief for the longest time was Ricky Warnier which would make Tyler - Posse. Wouldn't it?

He is not Opperman. This is not the 1970's. I loved those times but the drugs have to go.

I helped push that myth. Had I known I would have not. OLD SCHOOL RULES---KIDS WATCH THE RACERS AND THEY WATCH US. SORRY TYLER, BUT YOU KNOW THE DEAL. Should racing support second chances without real consequences in these circumstances, I will find a new group of people to hang out with. Race car drivers should be off limits when it comes to drugs.

I think a lot of people would be surprised if they knew what was going on behind the scenes.

I've been behind the scenes enough to know that after the driving days are over, legends are tainted with this crap. If Opp had given up the weed, he might have made it to Indy more often. His power of personality overcame that[mostly]. How much more could he have done without it? I don't do drugs partly because racers I knew wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole. And yes I know I could have liked it a little tooooooo much. In this sport if you violate children or do illegal drugs, I HAVE NO SYMPATHY WHEN YOU FALL. Forget not, forgive not, faith no more. There are plenty of other sports with these problems.

Sorry to hear that about Tyler. He is a good person that has put up some good fights against this illness for some time. I hope people will not judge him for having a disease of addiction that has cost allot of us allot of things. Lets just hope for all you that think you are above sickness you might have a son, daughter, sister or brother that is struggling from this same thing, you can bet your last dollar that Tyler did not wake up one day and say, I think I'll go out and flunk a drug test today and open my life back up to guilt,shame and God knows what other persecution the world has for him. Tyler if you, or someone reads this that cares call Jac or someone to get in touch with me and we will beat this together. Remember we never look down on a man unless we are bending over to pick him up. Tyler you know this caused me a career in the NFL, lets not let it cost you. Get HUMBLE!

okay, alcoholism or drug addiction is not a disease, it's an irresponsibility. A disease is caused by a virus or some kind of other pathogen. Addiction is not. Anyone can become addicted to things. I used to do a certain something all the time in college, when my grades went down I buckled down and quit, just like that, and now I just got into law school. It's really not that hard. You just have to learn to be responsible and think of the best decision.

i agree with Rogue i used to " party " alot when i was around 18 done it pretty hard for about 3 to 4 months woke up one day and decided i didnt want to live like that i still drink ( occasionally ) but i dont let it control my life people now a days dont take any responsiblity for their own actions it is always some one elses fault maybe it was the crowd he was hanging around with but he still in the end is responsible for his own actions just like these ball players maybe if they werent paid so much and had so much throw away money they wouldnt be mixed up with this crap make them " work " for $10.00 per hour and see how many drugs they do then
