Mayfield tests positive again

The fight to lift the ban on Jeremy Mayfield’s ban from NASCAR has apparently hit a road block as it was learned that he has once again tested positive for methamphetamine.
The positive test came as the result of a random drug test on July 6.
In a U.S. District Court filing on Wednesday, that positive test result was submitted to the judge who lifted the ban on Mayfield by NASCAR, who was asking that the ban be reinstated.
The filing also included a signed affidavit from Mayfield’s stepmother claiming she saw him use methamphetamine at least 30 times over the past seven years.
Mayfield again denied the accusations, saying that NASCAR paid her to lie.
