Why can't the public know the list of Nascars banned substances? Shouldn't this possibly pertain to all drivers health and safety?

What's the point, now?  He's been driven out of the sport...
 
No such list exists for the drivers according to this article on jayskis but I can only guess it's close to what the crews are tested for  :eek:

http://www.jayski.com/teams/drug-policy.htm
Among the substances NASCAR crews must be tested for are:
- Seven different amphetamines, including methamphetamine and PMA, a synthetic psychostimulant and hallucinogen.
- Three drugs classified under ephedrine.
- 13 different narcotics, including codeine and morphine.
- Ten different benzodiazepines and barbituates.
- Marijuana, cocaine, zolpidem, nitrites, chromates and drugs that can increase specific gravity.
(the crews include - pit crew members, including "over-the-wall" crew members, the crew chief, car chief, team members responsible for tires, fuel and pit crew operation, spotters and race-day support personnel that includes engineers, engine tuners, shock specialists, chassis specialists and tire specialists). No such list exists for the drivers

Nitrite tests for commonly used commercial adulterants such as Klear or Whizzies. They work by oxidizing the major cannabinoid metabolite THC-COOH. Normal urine should contain no trace of nitrite. Positive results generally indicate the presence of an adulterant

Nitrate, whats in yourt hot dog..... :)
