Mayfield Issues Statement About Suspension

Jeremy Mayfield released a statement following his suspension for violating NASCAR’s substance abuse policy.

Mayfield said:

As both a team owner and a driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, I have immense respect for the enforcement policies NASCAR has in place. In my case, I believe that the combination of a prescribed medicine and an over the counter medicine reacted together and resulted in a positive drug test. My Doctor and I are working with both Dr. Black and NASCAR to resolve this matter. Mayfield Motorsports remains committed to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the organization will announce an interim owner and a temporary replacement driver early next week. Those roles will commence immediately beginning with next week’s Sprint Open and continuing through Charlotte and beyond.

    Hopefully, NASCAR allows the splitting of test samples in order to allow the accused to have his tested by a legal lab other than NASCAR. If not allowed, it is then called Communism!
    I worked as a business agent in a labor union and there were a few times that the accused had a false/positive and we were successful in an arbitration. Heck, I suppose arbitration is banned in NASCAR also.
