Jeremy Mayfield won’t be racing in NASCAR anytime soon after his most recent drug test came back positive once again.
NASCAR filed court papers on Wednesday asking that Mayfield’s
indefinite suspension for violating the sport’s substance abuse policy
be reinstated after his test came up positive for methamphetamine.
“We say to the court that Jeremy flouted both this court’s authority
and NASCAR’s Substance Abuse Policy by ingesting the same illegal drug
that he has repeatedly denied taking within days of the court’s
granting of the preliminary injunction,” court documents said.
However, Mayfield denied ever using the illegal drug.
“I don’t trust anything NASCAR does, anything [program administrator] Dr. David Black does, never have, never will,” Mayfield told The Associated Press in a phone interview.
Mayfield originally tested positive for methamphetamine on May 1 and
was suspended eight days later for violating the sport’s policy. He was
granted the injunction, which lifted the suspension, two weeks ago in
federal court by Judge Graham Mullen.
