We all know about Jeremy Mayfield there really isn't much more to say about the whole situation as of right now. 8 years ago was his last year to race at Penske. He would soon sign with Everham in 2002. His step mother said he started taking meth in 1998-2005. I personally do think Jeremy is right about NASCAR paying his step mother or even his step mother trying to make Jeremy's life hell maybe she didn't even get paid maybe NASCAR just came to her. But 7 years ago he drove for Everham. We all know that Mayfield and Everham had a falling out a few years later. My thought is maybe NASCAR was trying to link these two. With Jeremy's performance becoming below par over the last seven year its a very realistic thought that NASCAR is trying to say that his performance fell off because of meth. As a meth head you begin to look pretty rough you lose will to hide the way you look and you become very noticable in a crowd. Does Jeremy truly truly look like a meth head.
February 13,1998. Its really hard to find a picture from 11 years ago this is the best i could do. '98 was a very good year for Jeremy. It was the year he finished his highest in the rankings, 7th.
He had 1 win 12 top-5's, 16 top-tens, 1 pole and led 471 laps. Pretty hard to do on meth.
March 14, 1999. Yet another good year in the point for Mayfield and another year on meth, he would finish 11th.
5 top-5's, 12 top-10's, and led 221 laps. I just dont get how osmebody on meth can drive a car at 200 mph and not crash.
Ahh 2000 my favorite year for Jeremy. Headlines everywhere The Intimidator get intimidated! Great race at Pocono. Shall we go back to that amazing day where Mayfield shows his skills as a driver I wonder if he was high on meth.
This Is Jeremy Mayfield, November 16, 2001.
2001 was Jeremy's last year in the No. 12 car.
He started off the year with 3 consecutive top-10 finishes. He was released after 28 races from Penske Racing and sat out the rest of the season after signing with Everham.
He had 5 top-5's 7 top-10's and led 60 laps. He also qualified for every race he attempted.
Semptember 20, 2002. 7 years ago Jeremy first drove for the NO. 19 team.
He has been taking meth for 5 years now according to his step mom.
He has 2 top-5's, 4 top-10's, and led only 30 laps.
Maybe the "meth" is to blame....or switching to a new team.
Either way he looks pretty healthy getting a little gray though.
November 14, 2003. So far Jeremy has been taking meth for a year. This year would be a better year for Mayfield even though he has to take an extra five mintues on every pit stop to snort up some meth. Regardless, he had 4 top-5's, 12 top-10's, 1 pole and led 156. It's not great but he did pretty good.
November 19, 2004. Ahh the first year for the chase.
Jeremy drug use has become a problem now he's been on the drug for 7 years and it really shows.. Huh?? It doesn't? Really? You're right it doesn't he is still looking pretty healthy. He is now taking an extra ten mintues during the pit stops to get his fix. He overcomes the time deficit though. He had 1 win... What? He won?.. Sweet. he also had 5 top-5's, 13 top-10's he had 2 poles and also led 386 laps his final standing were 10th. So that means he was in the chase.. THE CHASE! That takes skill does it not? Especially on meth.
December 2, 2005. Thats right he was in the Chase again. Anywho he's been on meth for 8 years now. In 2005 Jeremy had yet another win as well as 4 top-5's, 9 top-10's, and led 151 laps. Okay okay so maybe it's not as great as your beloved Jimmie Johnson or Jeff Gordon but c'mon this guy is on meth waht do you expect from his!? He even did better than Dale Earnhardt Jr. Hmm.. Maybe there is something to this whole racing while on meth deal. Also this is the year that Mayfield and Everham had their falling out because Ray was tired off all the meth use. Right? No. Its the allegations of Ray Everham cheating on his wife. Not my business though but thats what happened.
August 25, 2006 Not the greatest year for Jeremy. This year was ultimately a bust for Mayfield he raced two events for Billy Ballew and was signed by Bill Davis Racing. he competed in 22 races and led 15 laps. People can say he just lost his stuff or maybe it was the meth... Or maybe he had bad equipment can you name a driver that was really all the successful at Bill Davis Racing. 9 years on meth he is looking pretty healthy actually he looks very healthy.
November 9, 2007. At this time Jeremy and Bill Davis part ways and Jeremy begins racing for HAAS Racing towards the end of the season. Yet another bust year for Mayfield 17 starts and leads 6 laps. Jeremy has been snorting meth for 10 years now right? Sure looks like it.
March 8, 2008. There really aren't any worthy stats. Is that the point NASCAR is trying to make are they trying to say because he was on meth his performance suffered to that i say no he just had bad equipment. And when he was put in some good equipment did he not qualify 10th for Ganassi. This is 10 years on meth right here take it in. Can you seriously sit there and tell me he looks like a meth head.
This is what somebody really looks like when their one meth. THIS IS 2.5 YEARS ON METH
Just think about it. Thats four years.
