1. CrockerFan has this mistaken belief that a GC-MS can be set up to test for only certain drugs that nascar has on it's list. CrockerFan says repeatedly nascar only "tests" for certain drugs which is a myth because GC-MS tests for everything. Lay people (without a science background) think of GC-MS like foolproof urinalysis tests that look for certain "illicit" drugs. For example, nascar or a company can use GC-MS to see if someone is taking drugs that are prescribed for certain types of diseases who's symptoms might present a danger to others.
2. Aegis or any other lab company will give a full report to nascar. Nascar might ban certain substances, but the idea that a lab company would conceal or withhold info from a GC-MS would draw into legal question their ability to be unbiased.
3. The idea that nascar does not care if a driver with a prescription is abusing the prescription is crazy. Many prescription drugs are in the same family as illegal drugs. The abuse of prescription medication is consider prima facie evidence of a crime. This is how federal and state prosecutors go after Doctors they consider to be "pill mills" giving out prescriptions to anyone that asks for them. Nascar is going to allow a driver to race that they know is abusing a prescription medicine and sit on evidence that a driver is a potential "victim" of a medical doctors criminal misconduct?
I think CrockerFan has combined what he has heard repeated so many times with out what he understands about old urine tests along with what he reads in a rules book without using common sense about the law and reading up on GC-MS. My sister and brother-in-law are paramedics that have taken many urine tests and have never been tested using GC-MS. I think based on posts CrockerFan might be a helicopter pilot that has probably had several urine test and thinks of GC-MS like a foolproof urine test which is simply not true.
CrockerFan would have you believe that nascar would not even know if a driver or crew member was abusing a prescription drug (that they have a prescription for) because they do not test for it. I think based on GC-MS nascar knows everything in the sample and would like to know if CrockerFan knows what nascar would do if nascar found out a driver or crew member using the GC-MS test was abusing a legally prescribed stimulant that was not on their list of banned substances?
I think because of privacy issues nascar would suspended the driver or crew member until the person could explain why he tested positive to a legally prescribed stimulant that was way above the "threshold" allowed for dosage based on the prescription. CrockerFan actually thinks nascar would not even know about it because it would not show up in the GC-MS results nascar gets from the lab nor would they care because it is not a banned stimulant. ...
