Jeremy Mayfield Fails Second Drug Test in NASCAR: Veteran driver, Jeremy Mayfield has stirred up the world of NASCAR after he tested positive for a second time during a sport-administered test on July 6th.
The NASCAR affidavit, which stated that Mayfield used methamphetamines, along with documentation supplied by his stepmother who says she saw him use the drugs since 1998, leaves it all in the hands of a federal judge. The next big race in the NASCAR schedule is the 2009 All State 400 at The Brickyard on July 26, 2009.

The judge’s verdict will not make a difference for Mayfield’s future in NASCAR. Having two positive drug tests will make it almost impossible to gain sponsorship and get his team back on the right track. It has been made clear after all employees of Mayfield Motorsports, Inc have resigned since the incident was made public.
NASCAR had suspended the driver May 9th, but last week a judge issued an injunction that overturned the suspension in order to let Mayfield compete. NASCAR was obviously not happy with the overruling since they appealed the ruling. They stated that a racer who has been proved to be a methamphetamine user would be a bad example to have back on the track.
Mayfield shared his frustration on the incident on Wednesday night on a XM radio show. "It's just like if somebody accuses you…they say, 'Hey, man, you're going to jail.' They send you to jail and you've got to explain later how you're going to get out. (But) you're not going to take the fall for somebody else. You're going to stand up, be a man about it, and fight for what's right — that's what I gotta do."
Mayfield was on his way to a great racing season, as he made the Daytona 500 and qualified for five of the first 11 races. This quickly came to an end after a drug test put a stop to his season and possibly career.
But Mayfield is known for speaking his mind and clearly states he will stand up for himself and what he feels is right. "You know, Brian France out there talking about effective drug policy, it's kind of like Al Capone talking about effective law enforcement…I think the world needs to hear that, too,” he stated.
