How did NASCAR get from Hudson Hornet to Generation 6 cars? See the transition.

The Spectrum of St. George reports that police stopped Timothy Tyler Andrew Walker on Wednesday in southern Utah following a chase that began in Nevada. Authorities say Walker had marijuana, pills and open containers of alcohol in his luxury BMW sedan.

They also arrested a female passenger.

Walker competed in 28 NASCAR races before the association suspended him in 2007 for violating its drug policy. He drove in 19 NASCAR Nationwide series and nine Camping World Truck Series races during his career.

Walker stopped the black BMW after he drove over spike strips on the road, then ran away before being arrested.
