NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield was allowed to drive following a positive drug test, which was not for steroids. NASCAR will not reveal what banned sustance he tested positive for; however, they have said that it was not a performance-enhancing substance and it was not alcohol related, which means that he likely tested positive for the abuse of a prescription drug, narcotics, or controlled substances.

Mayfield appealed the initial positive result, which allowed him to practice on Friday at Darlington. He was not suspended until his backup sample also tested positive. He said that he tested positive due to a mixture of over-the-counter drugs, but NASCAR has refuted that explanation by saying that “A combination of an over-the-counter drug taken with a prescription drug could not cause the positive that we took action on.”

Mayfield has been suspended indefinitely.
