NASCAR reinstated former champion crew chief Todd Parrott on Tuesday upon completion of its Substance Abuse Road to Recovery Program.
NASCAR indefinitely suspended Parrott on Oct. 17, 2013, for violating the sanctioning body’s Substance Abuse Policy. He had been a crew chief at Richard Petty Motorsports at the time but was let go after the infraction.
Parrott was the crew chief for Dale Jarrett when Jarrett won the 1999 Sprint Cup championship. Parrott has 31 Cup victories as a crew chief.
