DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR has reinstated former Sprint Cup crew member Jackson L. Dodson II after he completed its "Road to Recovery" policy.

NASCAR announced the move Tuesday.

Dodson was a mechanic on Clint Bowyer's car when he was indefinitely suspended from NASCAR on May 9 for violating the sanctioning body's substance abuse policy. Michael Waltrip Racing fired Dodson upon learning he'd failed a drug test.
