Virginia police say former NASCAR driver Kevin Grubb died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

Henrico County Police spokesman Lt. Doug Perry said Thursday
that Grubb's body was found by personnel at the Richmond-area
Alpine Motel on Wednesday.

Perry said they found no indication of any drug use inside the
room, but toxicology results may not be available for up to six
weeks.

The 31-year-old was suspended from NASCAR indefinitely in 2006
because he refused to submit to a random drug test following the
Busch Series race at Richmond International Raceway.

The Mechanicsville native was previously suspended in March 2004
for failing a drug test. But he agreed to random testing as part of
his reinstatement. Grubb's career began with NASCAR's lower-tier
series in 1997.
