DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has reinstated Bayley Currey after his successful completion of the Road to Recovery Program, following a violation of the sanctioning body’s Substance Abuse Policy.

NASCAR announced Aug. 15 that Currey had been suspended indefinitely. The 22-year-old driver was required to complete the Road to Recovery before he could be cleared to resume competing.

Currey has 47 NASCAR national series starts to his credit, with 19 apiece in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, as well as nine in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

The Texas driver’s career-best in any NASCAR national series was a sixth-place run at Michigan Int’l Speedway earlier this year in Gander Trucks action.

Currey’s nine Cup Series starts all have been with Rick Ware Racing and all came this year.

Upon announcement of his suspension, Currey said in a statement that he had used a pre-workout supplement called Juggernaut Irate, which contained a banned substance called DMAA (2-Amino-5-methylhexane).

“I was obviously not aware that I was violating NASCAR’s Substance Abuse Policy,” Currey said at the time. “I have immediately asked NASCAR to enter me into the Road to Recovery Program where I will gain more knowledge about such banned supplements and I will fully cooperate with NASCAR’s direction and advice.”
