Jeremy Mayfield Suspended Indefinitely for Failing Random Drug Test

Five-time NASCAR premier series winner, Jeremy Mayfield has become the first to be penalized for failing a new random drug test implemented by NASCAR.

The punishment is a rough one, as Jeremy Mayfield and 2 of his crew members were suspended from NASCAR indefinitely. Although NASCAR has tested for drugs in the past, it was usually due to some sort of probable cause. However, random drug testing just began in NASCAR, it currently has some of the strictest anti-drug policies in competitive sports.

NASCAR has not released any specific information about the type or types of drugs Mayfield tested positive for, only saying that is certainly more serious than just alcohol. “He is suspended as an owner and a driver,” Said series Vice President Jim Hunter. “His team could be operated by somebody else, but Jeremy will not be allowed to participate.”
