NASCAR Driver Jeremy Mayfield Suspended for Substance Abuse

Jeremy Mayfield Substance Abuse

NASCAR Driver Jeremy Mayfield was suspended last week for violating the sports substance abuse policy after he tested positive for an illegal substance during a random drug screening. NASCAR just implemented random testing this year. Also suspended were crew members Tony Martin (#34 team) and Ben Williams (#16 team).

Jeremy Mayfield has been suspended indefinitely from NASCAR for the violation, which spells major problems for his team as he not only the driver but the owner of the #41 car. Ironically, the first person to ever be suspended for violating NASCAR’s new substance abuse policy was none other than Jeremy Mayfield’s crew member, Paul Chodora.

At this point, Jeremy Mayfield is claiming that he is innocent and that the violation was the result of his mixing Claritin D with other medications. J.J. Yeley will replace Mayfield as the driver of the #41 car this weekend in the 40-lap qualifying race of the Sprint Showdown at Lowe’s Motor Speedway. Mayfield’s wife, Shana Mayfield, assumes his role as team owner.
