First time shame on Claritin...Second time Shame on Mayfield.

The 2009 NASCAR season has given us their dirty version of Desperate Housewives gossip. The main subject is the one and only Jeremy Mayfield. I have done two previous articles on the claimed drug use on Mayfield (and was attacked by a few readers)....they can be viewed here and here.

Today, a second set of drug testing showed us that once again, Mayfield tested positivley for methamphetamine. This comes two weeks after U.S. District Court Judge Graham Mullen issued a temporary injunction to allow him to get back behind the wheel at Daytona International Speedway....which he never showed for.

According to NASCAR, Jeremy gave a second urine sample on July 6 and it "conclusively" proved that he has once again used Meth.

The most interesting part of this whole mess is what Mayfield's stepmother, Lisa Mayfield said to the press. Meth is a touchy subject to me as I "lost" a childhood friend to this drug. Yet, I would never step infront of a National media circus and air her dirty laundry. For a family member to come out and say the following quotes seems like a cry for her to be in the lime light. If she wanted to help, there are other non Media ways to do so.

Lisa stated she was personally aware" of Mayfield's use of methamphetamine between 1998 and 2005. "I was concerned about his heavy use and talked to his father about it."
"I saw Jeremy use methamphetamine by snorting it up his nose at least 30 times during the seven years I was around him."

Mayfield spoke on "The Late Shift" on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio last night about the allegations. He retaliated against his stepmom to Host Buddy Baker by saying:
"I'm not even going to call that lady my stepmom. That was a lady who was married to my dad who is very, very angry at me. And that's all going to come out too. It's a whole different subject. A lady who pretty much shot and killed my dad and that'll all, in the next few days you'll be hearing more about that. It's just another part of my life that's going on that I've had to get figured out. I had private investigators and everything on my dad's case when it all happened in '07. She's a very evil lady and obviously can be bought and her time's coming. And it's definitely somebody that doesn't like me whatsoever and doesn't deserve to even have the Mayfield last name. She's, like I said, very angry and obviously out to do whatever she's got to do and NASCAR jumps right on the bandwagon. And I guess when you get paid to say something you can say whatever you want to say. But, like I said, that's a whole different, separate thing that's going on in my life that you'll be hearing about more in the next couple of days with a wrongful death situation that she's involved in and trying everything she can to get back at me. And what do you say? I damn sure won't call her a stepmom, I tell you that. She never was."

I think it is safe to say the gloves are off and it is going to get even more dramatic over the next few weeks. If your interested, Mayfield's lawyers are being mute about the subject and you can can view the court filing here: NASCAR's complaint against Mayfield (.pdf)

Jeremy has sunk lower then I ever thought possible for a human to go.
Thank you NA$CAR, for proving that he is a total druggie. NA$CAR you have gained a ton of credibilty all over the place because you are sticking to the truth! Keep it up and just ignore the other druggies who back Methfield!
