I can't stand Braindead either, but I don't see why this is any of Mayfield business. It's like he is saying " Well, maybe if I get some dirt on Briandead, I can hold it over his head saying if you tell the pubic I am a druggie, I will tell the public all this dirt about you."
It just seems to make Mayfield look more guilty then ever.

Look, I have followed this thing from the very beginning. The reason the ex got brought into it is because of Mayfield trying to speed up everything. Moving to Federal court was Nascar's lame move to slow it all down. Because of the move, all affidavits, evidence, and court filings would have to be re-submitted. That pushes the trial even further back.
So, Mayfield is trying to prove Brian France's state of residency.(he is afterall the main focus along with Aegis labs of the case) So, if the judge rules that Brian's residency is in Charlotte NC (which it is, although he contends it is in Daytona.) then the case moves back to state court and the judge who has presided over everything thus far.
He needed the ex wife to get involved to prove the state of residency.
They appeared before a judge Feb 4th and I have not yet heard the outcome

Jeremy Mayfield has embarassed the racing community and himself with meth use and his phobic denial. NASCAR put it's self in a no win situation when they did the correction thing and suspended the dopehead. If they were going to do anything to help themselves they would have called Jeremy in and said, look Dude, you just came up hot. Keep your mouth shut and clean yourself up. They didn't, they did exactly as they should have done. Putting it out in front of the public that they had a driver/car owner using Meth sure as the world didn't put any money in their pocket and that's what everyone accuses NASCAR of, caring about only the money. If NASCAR drags it out till Mayfield has to flip burgers at McD's to pay his lawyers will be exactly what the dummy deserves.

No Mary, let's put both their names there. I'm not a Brian France fan either. I don't think he'd make a good pimple on his grandfather's butt however, he didn't have anything to gain by throwing Mayfield under the train. Mayfield's suspension was an embarrassment that Brian France could just as easily avoided. Yeah, old Brian has his own can of worms BUT he doesn't drive a racecar if front of thousands of people at nearly two hundred miles per hour. Brian has enough problems navigating a parking lot at fifteen miles an hour. Mayfield made his own bed, he has to lay in it now. Sometimes a big ego can be damned expensive!

Its amazing how many smart people are here. Most of you state things as facts, but in fact no one knows exactly. Thats why its in court. France evidence should be allowed and most likely will be. It will go into the back workings of france and nascar. Just as we all deserve a day in court.

I do hope Mayfield wins his case. While I never was a fan of his I believe his troubles started when he made public comments about Ray's "interest" in Erin Crocker, while he was still married. Can't ever say anything bad about an established car owner; anybody remember Jody Ridley. Also, recently J.C. France,ex Grand Am driver, was caught with drugs: does this have anything to do with Brian not wanting his Ex to talk with Mayfield's lawyers?

France's wife has no bearing on this case. Mayfield failed a drug test and then when given the chance to clear his name he didn't take it. This is all a smoke screen.

how ever its spelled dont matter but jeremy will be back and with more of the france money to spend and i dont think they would put the boot to johnson or dale jr it would lose to much money but if your going to test drivers and crews lets test all the staff as well owners to why would brian care if they depose his ex wife if you dont have any thing to hide why dose it matter but how can you trust nascar after what they did to tim richmond did i spell that right snow since you take great pride in spell checking me you may be under the nascar spell but there are many of us that can look at things and see what is real and what is a joke and what happened to all the witnesses that were going to help nascar oh yes there all worthless now the things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmm !

I don't understand why people say this isn't relavent This isn't a smoke screen. Jeremy believe that Nascar has a crook running Nascar and he has every right to prove the guy is not credible. If Brian France is as bad as many believe he is, I'm sure the court and jury would like to know that. Generally a person that has been proven to be crooked does not seem very reliable to a jury.
