Said Lisa R. Mayfield:
"Between 1998 and 2005, I am personally aware that Jeremy used methamphetamine often. 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 thirty times during the seven years I was around him."
The Associated Press reports that Mayfield's second positive test for methamphetamine ignited more denials from the driver. “I don't trust anything NASCAR does, anything Dr. David Black does, never have, never will,” Mayfield told AP during a phone interview.
Black is the administrator for NASCAR's drug-testing program.
“And they picked the wrong woman to use against me because that (expletive) is trash and has got nothing on me,” Mayfield said.
The court papers also describe how Mayfield was asked to report for drug testing on July 6 but missed the two-hour deadline because he got lost. Black called the behavior "classical efforts of a drug user to avoid being tested."
Testers arrived at Mayfield's home. The court papers said Mayfield’s urine sample was “very dilute,” which likely indicates an excessive consumption of water “in an effort to defeat a drug test.”
