Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series crew chief Matt Borland has completed the Road to Recovery program and will be reinstated from his suspension, NASCAR announced Tuesday, Sept. 24.
Borland is the crew chief for Ty Dillon’s No. 13 in the Cup Series.
He was suspended indefinitely near the end of August for violating NASCAR’s substance abuse policy. The crew chief said he had been penalized for DMAA (2-amino-5-methylhexanamine), a prohibited substance under the sanctioning body.
He and team owner Bob Germain said they believed it was an ingredient in a diet coffee that he had used.
Borland will be back on top of the pit box for the No. 13 team for the Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend.
