Jeremy "Meth-head" Mayfield

27 posts in this topic

I used to go to a bar here in Richmond (in the late 70's early 80's) and nascar drivers would be leaving at 2am -3am drunk on their ass. They'd be in their cars at noon that day ready to race and I'd be in the stands. Just saying.

Someone should ask Jeremy how the weather is up there, cuz he's been getting high

He tested positive for meth on July 5, and his stepmother claims she's seen him get high on meth at least 30 times over the last 7 years.

Dang

Just saw the story on espn. Sure does sound fishy. Unless his stepmom has some type of axe to grind. It's always sad when althletes/drivers throw away everything for drugs or alcohol or gambling etc.

Call me crazy, but I believe Jeremy on this. I just don't think he could be so stupid to use meth after the first "positive test" and fighting so hard to disprove it and get back to the track. Something just seems fishy about this whole situation. I think NASCAR is for some reason or another, trying to get Mayfield out of the sport. Maybe it's because he successfully got a suspension lifted, or maybe for some other reason, but this whole situation seems too fishly for me.

Plus the article said that since the first positive test that Mayfield has had himself privately tested 6 time, and all have been negative. I find it way too fishy that the lab NASCAR is using has found Mayfield positive twice, but the lab Mayfield has been using has found him negative 6 times.

^^bottom fourth of the page is where it says that he's been tested 6 times

I've always thought that maybe he was taking "greenies" and getting behind the wheel. If that was the case, he was probably the safest and most alert guy out there. The US Airforce gives them to their pilots and they were much more popular in baseball than steroids ever were. Now if he is just a Methhead......

lol at some nascar conspiracy to get rid of mayfield. dude couldn't find a team that wanted him so he had to start his own.

i'll call him stupid just for the fact that he snorted his dope. what a waste of good meth.:D

it stays is your system for a whopping 2 days, and he couldnt time it where he could pass a nascar test? thats also why his own private tests are utter junk, btw.

I honestly don't know who to believe here. For all we know, Jeremy is a meth-head; on the other hand, since when does NASCAR has any substantial credibility? This, and it's not the first time they've hammered on the little guy (Carl Long and the large engine).

On a side note, the only memory I have of Jeremy Mayfield doing something relevant since I've started watching NASCAR in 2001 is this:

Really? Meth? I'd rather smoke crack, if given a choice. At least it is somewhat natural. Smoking poo from under the kitchen sink is stupid. Meth is Deth.

Apparently, his stepmom does have an axe to grind. Mayfield has accused her of not being totally innocent in his father's death and is having her investigated.

What I don't understand is if this prescription is causing him to test positive, can't he stop taking it, at least for a while in order to prove that he can pass their drug test?

All these accusations Mayfield is making (Nascar has it in for me, my stepmom killed my dad etc...) sound like the paranoid rantings a meth addict might say. In truth, I really don't know who to believe.

But regardless of whether he really did take meth, I don't think a sponsor is going to be willing to pony up the money for a car for him to drive. Unless its a sponsor that wants to legalize drugs. :)
