DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – NASCAR has reinstated Todd Parrott, the former crew chief of the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Ford, upon his successful completion of NASCAR’s Substance Abuse Policy Road to Recovery Program.

On Oct. 17 of last season, Parrott was found to have violated Sections 12-1 (actions detrimental to stock car racing) and 19 (violation of the NASCAR Substance Abuse Policy) of the 2013 NASCAR Rule Book and suspended indefinitely. Parrott was fired by Richard Petty Motorsports a few days later.

Parrott has worked for a number of top organizations throughout NASCAR during the last 15 years, including leading Dale Jarrett to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship in 1999 while at Robert Yates Racing.
