Former NASCAR driver Kevin Grubb dead at 31


Kevin Grubb, a former NASCAR Nationwide Series driver, was found dead on Wednesday at a hotel outside of Richmond, Va., reports.

Grubb, of Mechanicsville, Va., was 31 years old. Henrico County Lt. Richard Cosby told the website that the cause of death was not released but no foul play was suspected.

Grubb was suspended from competing in NASCAR-sanctioned events because of his refusal to submit to a drug test in September 2006 following a second-lap crash at Richmond International Raceway.

In March 2004, Grubbs failed a NASCAR mandated drug test and was suspended indefinitely by the sanctioning body. NASCAR reinstated him in 2006 and he returned to drive in the Nationwide Series and Camping World Truck Series.

Grubb, the younger brother of former NASCAR driver Wayne Grubb, made his Nationwide debut at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 1997 and went on to start 174 Nationwide races from 1997-2006. He never made a start in the Sprint Cup Series.
