Motorsports will return to the race track.
Bobby Wooten says he was the last remaining employee. The team
was started this season, and Mayfield said in court documents he
had to lay off 10 employees since NASCAR suspended him in May for
failing a random drug test.

bring the No. 41 Toyota to the track in the two races since he was
Wooten says he does not believe Mayfield has any interest in
resurrecting the team.
