Really sad when someone had a good career going and he messes it up along with his life over drugs. Hope he gets some help for his addiction.

Meth is very powerful. People toy with it because they hear its an intense high but then they get hooked and their life is over. Kinda sad, but grown adults who start doing this stuff should know better.

When he got popped for that test in 2009 he swore up & down he was innocent. What a liar. He ruined his career for this drug. Very sad. What's up w/stolen property. Is he a thief now too? Hopefully now he can get straight.

Good. This jerk belongs behind bars. Can you imagine being on the same race track going 200 mph with a tweaker in the mix. He put all of the other racers lives in danger. Hope he gets the book thrown at him. I have no respect for the pig.

The funny thing is when he initially failed his drug test with nascar a few yeras ago, alot of people here in NC believed him when he said it was a lab mistake! When he failed the drug test, the amount that was in his system was so incredibly high that he actually had experts testify on his behalf that it was virtually impossible for him to have that much in his system and not display ANY of the negative physical characteristics of the drug! I mean, the guy had near perfect teeth and skin, no dark circles, and never "acted " like a meth head. Im still impressed that he was able to hide it so well. So sad!

When Jeremy failed his drug test with NASCAR I defended him because I thought there was noway he could be on METH and show no signs of use. I have been on his side all this time and felt sorry for him for being wronged by NASCAR.....Wow, I was fooled.
