PEDs in NASCAR (and not just Flying J coffee).

Ron Hornaday's 2007 NASCAR Craftsman Trucks Series championship is now shrouded under a cloud of doubt after the racer admitted to using HGH and Testosterone from December 2004 to January 2006. Hornaday, who currently sits second in the 2008 Trucks Series standings, told the espens that the drugs were shipped from a Florida clinic to his home in North Carolina under his wife's name, and that he used them to treat an undiscovered thyroid problem that since has been corrected.

Hornaday says he "couldn’t see a difference," so he stopped using.

First Andy Pettitte, then Ron Hornaday. Athletes failing in their attempts to use performance-enhancing drugs is a troubling trend. These guys are winners, damnit.
