NASCAR says Jeremy Mayfield has again tested positive for
methamphetamine and wants the federal judge who lifted the driver's
drug suspension to reinstate the ban.
The positive result from a July 6 random test was included in a
U.S. District Court filing Wednesday.

claims she personally witnessed the driver using methamphetamine at
least 30 times over seven years.

The filing also claims Mayfield and his attorneys have failed to
select a qualified laboratory to test the backup "B" sample.
