NASCAR Driver Mayfield Suspected of Methamphetamine Use

By: Joshua White

RICHMOND, Virginia (KLTV) -- NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield may have taken something a little more potent than allergy medication.

According to an anonymous source that came forward to ESPN, court documents reveal that Mayfield used methamphetamine.

Mayfield tested positive for banned substances prior to the May 1 race at Richmond International Raceway.

NASCAR suspended Mayfield indefinitely on May 9.

NASCAR rules state that a driver must tell testing officials what medications they are currently taking to avoid confusion during the test.

Mayfield told the testing administrator that he had taken a double dose of the allergy medication Claritin-D, as well as the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medication Adderall XR, prior to the May 1 race.

The anonymous source claims that court documents redacted a third drug, methamphetamine, from the records.

Both NASCAR and Mayfield remain silent to the allegations because of a May 29 gag order issued by Mecklenburg County Superior Court in North Carolina.
