Brian France can afford to pay off the police, politicians, prosecutors, and Judges.

Denver Dan, I know that from the start we have not been on the same side on this Mayfield issue, however, I have always respected your support and wish to believe in Jeremy. You once stated that Jeremy did not have the looks of a meth head because of his fairly good physical appearence. I would think that you must (as an up front sort of person) look deeper and judge the desperate actions and legal problems that Jeremy has had and wonder about his involvement in drugs. I am by no means a Brian France fan and I do believe that he is a fat drunk and is a negative influence on NASCAR. To believe the rants of some of the Mayfield supporters that France fixed the test results, paid off the cops and did everything under the sun to hurt a driver who had become a basic nobody seems to be absurd. First, I do not believe that Fat Brian has that type of brain power and second he did not have to do these things. Jeremy had called in all of his favors to get his car to Daytona in 09, after that race he had, in a systematic way, stiffed most of the people who had sold him items on good faith and had lost the ability to get funding to field a car.
This latest issue of calling the radio station was just another step in his downward spiral in life and even more destructive just another attempt at not admitting his part in the distruction of his life. Right now Jeremy has two choices, one is to admit to his problem/problems, attempt to get help and go forward and attempt to lead a productive life, perhaps as a spokesman for the pitfalls of fame with NASCAR. Choice two is to keep living the lie and get deeper in denial and end up without a family and living on the streets in a major city.
One never wants to see the ultimate destruction of anybody so on the last issue I hope that Jeremy does a Lance Armstrong and admits to himself and the racing world that he does have a problem. Remember, Americans love the underdog and the person who has faced adversity, fallen on his face and has came back just as strong or stronger to fight his personal deamons.

France doesn't/didn't get behind the wheel of a 3400 lb race car going 200 mph while inches from the bumper of 42 other drivers while he was high (whether drugs or alcohol).

Don't care for France but care even less for Mayfield!

I have always said, and I will say again, I only want the TRUTH...and nothing but the TRUTH...from both sides. Since you know so much, you know the big name drivers have ALWAYS gotten by with more than the lesser known, no name drivers who don not sell all of the NASCAR merchandise. There once was a thing called NASCAR Thunder Stores, nationwide, that did not make it, and after his first win, the 12 car and Jeremy's stuff was on the front shelf! Later, and I have the race on tape, Jeremy had a car (again the 12) that would have lapped the field at Darlington, but the 71 of Marcis would not let Jeremy by (the slower cars, and especially the lapped cars) are supposed to "move over" and let the leader pass. Marcis did not, and the firts thing you know, he is in the wall. That is when I first noticed that something was wrong! L8R. DD.

Maybe you should ask Brian France's wife what she knows and thinks or should I say ex wife...

One must ask the question as to why a seemingly self professd non drinker, non smoker and non redneck is doing here. If all you have to do is come to a forum about something you seem not to like, what does that say about YOUR life?

Yea, right, an ex wife will tell all of the good things about her ex husband. They are exes for a reason. I am not a Brian France fan, by any means, being that I have an opinion of Brian France that is very negative, what kind of woman would marry somebody of such low character? Either a bird of a feather or a gold digger, do you think that this type of person would be very careful to tell the truth?
