Brad Keselowski had some strong words about teammate
Keselowski said Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway no matter what happens with Allmendinger's "B" sample results next week things will never be the same for his career.
"Whether it comes back positive or negative, it's still a death sentence," said Keselowski.
But Keselowski had even stronger comments about any driver or athlete using performance or health boosting supplements.
"My personal belief is that nothing should be allowed," he said. "Nothing. I don't feel like you should be able to take Flintstones pills. It's my personal belief. You're race car drivers, you should have to overcome it. I think it's a bunch of (expletive) people should be allowed to take supplements, any of those things. I don't think that's right. I don't think any athlete should be allowed to take that. But that's my own personal belief."
Keselowski also doesn't have complete faith in the system NASCAR has in place being fail safe.
"When you go in that room to have a drug test – and I've never taken drugs in my life, I'm scared (expletive) of it and it's honestly a phobia of mine – I go in that room and I'm still scared," said Keselowski. "Because you know if something goes wrong, it's a death sentence for your career. It's over. And it's in human hands, and by the very nature of it being in human hands, there's a potential for error.
I'd like to sit here and believe it's gone through all the processes to make sure it's done right and no one would go out on a limb without making sure it was checked, checked and back-checked, but I also know that the course of history shows that humans make mistakes even when they check, check and re-check. That's why airplanes crash. That's how things go."
Keselowski reiterated his belief that athletes stay clear of any substance being used no matter the season.
"There's mixed emotions for sure on my end," he said. "I wish the pool of athletes that compete and make money like we do – whether it's here in NASCAR or the NFL – it would be my preference that we're allowed to take nothing, and that's it your job to just do it. To just go out there and perform through the pain or whatever ails you. But obviously, that's not the situation. Until we get together as a society and make that a position, there's always going to be this gray area in society of what supplement is right and what is not.
"I laugh out loud when I read that people say, 'Well I have my supplements checked.' Like there's some special list of supplements that are OK, but these aren't! What kind of world is that? That's terrible. Nothing should be allowed. Because then it comes down to if you've got a doctor or a lawyer who says, 'This is OK and this is not.' And I think we all know you can get a doctor or a lawyer these days to say you're OK with anything you do."
