I love this quote from his retirement press release.

Mr Stevens appears to have joined an esteemed group of ANDRA licence holders who have been associated with illegal drug related activities

Romeo Capatanio may well sitting in a cell somewhere hoping that Mr Stevens ends up taking over his current mantle as "most notorious"

maybe authorities should have listened to the hushed rumors?

Big problem for ANDRA here to save any sort of face -- they made him out to be there big star
of course the authorities knew of the rumours. Do you think the cops just decided to raid him yesterday. I'm sure Brett knew this day was coming too, hence the closure of the team.

Yes not good for ANDRA, it's members and sponsors when the sports biggest name and biggest team is caught like this. ANDRA may be able to distance itself somewhat as he and the team had already left the sport.
Although Brett was at Calder last week doing some car tuning for one of the Slammer's.

a friend of mine was at Shooter on the Wed night when Stevens got arrested for riding his bike from one bar into the main bar, they took him away for DD. Later that night she was in the bar that had closed to the public with some of her friends, Stevens, the owner and a couple of others. Her 2 friends one male one female both had their drinks spiked. Maybe she was right where she thought where it came from.

This certainly explains all the weird goings on with Brett lately. It is surprising but then again it is not surprising in todays day and age.

Is a big loss to the drag racing world that is for sure but lets hope his cars are allowed to be sold so others can take over where he left off.

There's motor racing, and then there's drag racing.

This news doesn't surprise me one bit.

Was there any truth to a story about fisty-cuffs between an executive from Jack Daniels and Brett and then someone from Makita and Brett or one of Brett's crew which led to both sponsors departing at the end of 2008??

This may have been kept out of the media but came from someone very close to the team.

I don't think ANDRA will suffer much from this event, only the same way that the Lukemia Foundation will?

Nothing compared to how they are and have been suffering for a long time due to it not being a National Sport (at the highest Group One Level)!

Judging by the level of equipment in the shed... did they really need any commercial sponsorship?

Yes this is very true, like most things it only takes one to ruin it, or atleast make a sport look negative through there actions outside the sport.
