Attorneys for Jeremy Mayfield say a federal judge should not
reverse the ruling that lifted the drivers' indefinite suspension
for failing a random drug test.

In a motion filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Charlotte,
N.C., Mayfield's lawyers contend Judge Graham Mullen properly ruled
when he granted a July 1 injunction.

The filing is a response to NASCAR's request that Mullen's order
be put on hold as the decision is appealed to the 4th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va.

Mayfield's lawyers did not formally responded to NASCAR's
request last week that Mullen reverse his ruling based on a second
failed drug test.

NASCAR contends Mayfield has twice tested positive for
methamphetamines. He's denied ever using the illegal drug.
