Kevin Grubb started racing in the NASCAR's Craftsman Truck Series in 1996 when he was 18. The next year he debuted in the Nationwide Series, bringing home ten top-five finishes and 32 top-ten finishes in 174 starts. On May 6 he was found in the Alpine Hotel in Richmond, Virginia dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
In 2004 he was dinged for violating NASCAR's anti-drug policy, and consented to random testing from then on during and after his two-year probation. Just three months after he was reinstated in 2006, NASCAR officials tried to test him after he crashed at a race in Richmond but he refused, resulting in NASCAR banning him for life. Grubb was 31 years old and authorities are investigating his death.
