J. Mayfield has a court date, in September 2010.
At that time I am sure NASCAR will be reminded by his attorney Mr. Diehl, that Jeremy has had his life, as he once knew it, irrevocably destroyed by NASCAR. In Judge Mullen's words, "Mayfield has had much more damage than NASCAR." In 2010, those damages may well be addressed.

Unfortunately, for Jeremy, I'm sure Nascar will remind Jeremy and his attorney that it is Jeremy who has destroyed his life. Hopefully, after he loses this case (if he can even hold out financially to make it to this court date) he and his attorney can start addressing the real problem, his drug abuse.

Someone keeps forgetting to address the potential damage that could have been caused by Nascar ignoring the positive drug test.

So, is a loss of income and reputation more damage than the loss of life that could have occurred and the damage that something like that would have caused to Nascar? I think not. Life sucks, he should have done everything in his power to make sure that the lab knew what he was taking and why and been honest a forthright prior to the test. Ohh well, he f'ed up.

I couldn't agree more. I'm glad that I've seen you points this out in several posts. I have the same feeling, but it's nice to see that your expressing it to everyone. Sometimes I forget to mention this obvious point.

Right. I suppose you, with your massive, intellectual abilities, will let us all know how things really are. I am not, nor will I ever be, an idot either. Not really sure what an idot is, it's probably how idiots like you misspell idiot. Are you cooking up a batch of meth with Jeremy right now? Tell him I said, "Hi!"

You got to remember NASCAR ran with old Step-Mother story. That in it self showed that NASCAR was out to destroy Jeremy. It one thing that is for sure, it will be up to a jury. If I was NASCAR I would be worried. Because they did not prove it in front of the judge that restated Jeremy.

Actually, the judge did not rule whether or not Nascar was wrong. He just said, that until he could do so, Jeremy could race because the damage caused to him would be significant if left suspended, totally forgetting that Jeremy isn't the only person in Nascar, there's fans, officials, team members and other drivers who could reap the consequences of a driver driving high.

Then another court said, Nawww keep him suspended.

Here's you an answer, Jeremy Mayfield was abusing a prescription drug, Adderall, and came up hot on a piss test. Instead of doing the smart thing and taking NASCAR up on their rehab program, he went into denial and is losing everything he has over his own stupidity. NASCAR made the call and can not back down. It's going to come down to who has the bucks to out last the other. Good bye Jeremy.

I have to be honest with you guys, every search I have done to figure this thing out for myself leads to Jeremy being innocent. The problem here is NASCAR has a reputation to try to prove everyone wrong, especially if NASCAR themselves are wrong.

Something else I must be honest about… I fear for Jeremy’s life! I know that may sound stupid to some, but it’s true, for a lot of reasons… & it all connects to someone else!...

See, 3 days before the revealing of Jeremy’s suspension in the first place, The NASCAR World got rocked by the death of a former driver, Kevin Grubb (See link below in case you don’t know or don’t remember):

http://www.topix.com/forum/nascar/T0K45OEDLPI...

While reviewing Grubb’s past, I saw a bunch of things that was eerily similar between him & Mayfield:
1. Both were suspended at Richmond (& both wrecked in that race)
2. Both have a history of concussions (Many don’t know this, but Grubb said he doesn’t remember refusing a drug test due to a concussion that a hospital later revealed; I myself didn’t know that until after his death)
3. Both have denied using anything illegal (In Mayfield’s case, he says it’s a false positive based on 2 medicines)
4. NASCAR has denied both (Denied Grubb a chance of a test he requested to prove he was clean after his concussion & denied believing Mayfield’s false positive theory)

This scenario I now call “The Mayfield Massacre” is virtually going down the same path as what happened to Grubb! There is only 1 difference I can think of right off the bat: The fact that Mayfield is fighting back, & I believe that is only because he knows how (Something about a suit against Ray Evernham a few years ago). I don’t think Grubb did.

The thing is if NASCAR wins, especially if everyone’s theory about Jeremy running out of money comes true, I sense that Jeremy will start suffering from severe depression. Unfortunately, if I’m right about that, I fear that Jeremy will end up killing himself soon after!

Sadly though, that’s where I see this going...

Mary, you have a good memory, and most drivers never come back from a head injury! Most people don't even remember Jeremy's concussion, but I do, and it was very, very scary. I hope he wins, and when he does, NASCAR will be out of a lot of money, but his reputation can never be brought back. I believe Jeremy! L8R. Denver Dan.

Kevin tested positive the first time in Mar. 2004 and was suspended. His suspension was lifted in June, 2006 and he ran in 5 Nationwide events before his suspension again on Sept 11, 2006 for refusing to take a drug test. The agreement between Kevin and NASCAR that lead to his first suspension being lifted was that he agreed to frequent and unannounced drug testing and that any refusal was an automatic suspension. The day after Kevin was suspended the second time, he claimed to NASCAR that he did not remember his refusal to be tested but it was a situation that could not be proved and NASCAR kept the suspension in force. It's very unfortunate but Kevin and Jeremy aren't the only drivers that have been suspended. Shane Hmiel was re-instated twice only to be banded for life after a third failed drug test. For an ordinary person without any personal knowledge of an individual's situation to try to make a case for a driver's suicide for an incident in Sept. of 2006 on May 6 2009, is really reaching for it. Personally, I think there was a lot more things involved in his suicide than NASCAR's refusal to give him another drug test.
