Shan, Do you know the NASCAR policy? They actually get drivers help and they get the chance to come back into the sport after the complete a course and get the help they need. Mayfield refused because he swears NASCAR set him up, blamed Brian France, and then his wife’s mother. Dude has done everything but take responsibility for his actions. He was suppose to go to court next month vs. NASCAR and now they are throwing the case out. He had the drugs in his possession. 1.5 grams of meth wrapped in baggies. He knew what he was doing. SMH! A good person? If you think stealing from companies is good, I'd hate to see your definition of a wonderful person.
