Jeremy Mayfield Tested Positive for Meth

It has been revealed by ESPN the magazine that two sources of theirs has said that Jeremy Mayfield had tested positive for methamphetamine, otherwise known as meth, during his random drug test at Richmond International Raceway. Originally, Mayfield had told the onsite testing personnel that he had taken two doses of Claritin-D and had called later, on May 3rd, to let them know that he had also taken Adderall-XR that had been prescribed to him by his doctor for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD.

No one is allowed to say for sure whether he tested positive for meth as of yet because of the court filings, so it is unlikely that we will hear anything from Nascar or Mayfield on the subject for awhile. I myself have known people who have taken meth, a lot of meth, as it is addictive, and it certainly takes a tole on the body, had he been doing it for very long then you would’ve been able to tell just by looking at him. The people I have known end up with rotting teeth, sores on their faces and probably all kinds of other stuff they would never admit too. So, if Jeremy has taken it at all, I would say it wasn’t for very long or very much.

Adderall I have heard more about in the sports world, being an amphetamine, players are taking it to get an edge, I imagine it would be a big help to one driving a race car in circles for three hours as it would help with their concentration. In the ESPN article they offer this quote from a doctor at AEGIS,

On May 3, Mayfield talked with Dr. David Black of AEGIS to inform him of the Adderall-XR prescription. According to the lawsuit filed by Mayfield against NASCAR and AEGIS, Black “expressed doubt that someone of Mayfield’s age and experience legitimately needed to take Adderall.” Source: Sources: Meth triggered positive test

There was a story in Newsweek about Baseball players using the ADD diagnosis to avoid the amphetamine ban, which would allow them to take Adderall, Ritalin and other drugs, and that the number of players diagnosed in one year had jumped from 28 to 103.

As Major League Baseball begins to dig out from its steroids scandal, new kinds of performance-enhancing substances are sweeping big-league clubhouses: Ritalin, Adderall and other drugs designed to help with Attention-Deficit Disorder. According to records MLB officials turned over to congressional investigators as part of George Mitchell’s probe into steroid use in baseball, the number of players getting “therapeutic use exemptions” from baseball’s amphetamines ban jumped in one year from 28 to 103—which means that, suddenly, 7.6 percent of the 1,354 players on major-league rosters had been diagnosed with ADD. Source: Baseball’s Other Drug Problem

So, whether Mayfield is taking meth or not, I wouldn’t be surprised if the same thing wasn’t happening here and in other sports as far as being diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, Adderall definitely helps with concentration and gives you plenty of energy, hell, everybody could use some I bet, we are a nation that’s sleeping less and less so we can get things done. I could use a prescription myself, hehe, but, should athletes be allowed to use any kind of performance enhancing drug? I don’t think so.

Chase for the 2008 Sprint Cup Now Set

I was worried about Nascar being able to get this race off after the delay due to Tropical Storm Hanna, but the weather was great and the racing was good, if someone besides Jimmie Johnson had won this race it would’ve been a lot better, the one thing no one needs, unless you are a Johnson fan, is for Jimmie to get hot right now. Too bad it is already happening.

Jimmie Johnson held off an aggravated Tony Stewart to win the Chevy Rock & Roll 400 in Richmond and his second in a row to come roaring into the Chase at the exact time they need too, starting the last ten races with big momentum, something they know is crucial after winning the last two championships. If they can win their third championship in a row, tying Cale Yarborough, the only other driver to ever win three championships in a row, it would certainly help cement the fact that this is the Jimmie Johnson era, all he would need to do would be win ten races in one year.

Clint Bowyer was in the Chase, then out, then back again to finally come in 12th, 69 points ahead of Kasey Kahne.

Bowyer clinched his spot in the Chase with a 12th-place finish — but not without his share of anxious moments along the way. After a slow pit stop left him mired in race traffic — and behind David Ragan, his closest pursuer for the final Chase berth entering the race — Bowyer recovered as Ragan faded (watch video).

Bowyer, who finished third in last year’s championship standings, claimed the last Chase position by 69 points over Kasey Kahne (19th on Sunday) and 77 over Ragan, who survived an early spin in Turn 2 to finish 32nd.

“We knew it was going to be a roller-coaster all day,” Bowyer said. “We lost track position when we had a couple of bad pit stops, but it worked out pretty good. We’ve got a lot of work to do here. We’ve got to prove we’re in this thing for a reason.” Source:

Here is how the 12 in the Chase will start, points wise:

1. Kyle Busch 5,080
2. Carl Edwards 5,050
3. Jimmie Johnson 5,040
4. Dale Earnhardt Jr. 5,010
5. Clint Bowyer 5,010
6. Denny Hamlin 5,010
7. Jeff Burton 5,010
8. Tony Stewart 5,000
9. Greg Biffle 5,000
10. Jeff Gordon 5,000
11. Kevin Harvick 5,000
12. Matt Kenseth 5,000

That 80 point lead could turn into a huge lead from Kyle Busch, or it could be wiped out in one race, one thing is for sure, it gets a lot more interesting from here on out. Here’s hoping Jeff Gordon and the number 24 team can take off strong and win his first Chase championship to go with the 4 other championships he already has.

Jimmie Johnson Takes the Points Lead from Gordon

Jimmie Johnson wins in Richmond, takes over point lead
Well, actually, Jimmie Johnson wins in Richmond, takes the points lead by 20 points over Jeff Gordon by virtue of him winning the last two races. Think we are going to have a repeat of last year? It certainly appears like we could be, Johnson is always running up front at the end when he is hot, and he is hot right now. Jeff Gordon, who was the point’s leader since the fifth race of the season, is now 20 points behind in second, and, if he and Johnson keep running like they have been, could be the difference in being number 1 and number 2.

Here is how the top 12 in points are right now:

1. Jimmie Johnson 6 5,060 Leader
2. Jeff Gordon 4 5,040 -20
3. Tony Stewart 3 5,030 -30
4. Carl Edwards 2 5,020 -40
5. Kurt Busch 2 5,020 -40
6. Denny Hamlin 1 5,010 -50
7. Matt kenseth 1 5,010 -50
8. Jeff Burton 1 5,010 -50
9. Kyle Busch 1 5,010 -50
10. Martin Truex Jr. 1 5,010 -50
11. Kevin Harvick 1 5,010 -50
12. Clint Bowyer 0 5,000 -60

The other big news is that Dale Earnhardt Jr., the series most popular driver, at least until he starts driving for Hendrick Motorsports, did not make the Chase. There were moments that looked like he might, when Kurt got in a little tangle and when Harvick shot through the grass, but it was not to be. At the end of the race, he had yet another motor blow on him, which kind of summed up his season so far.

Jimmie Johnson locked up his spot as the favorite for the Nextel Cup title, while Dale Earnhardt Jr. was locked out of NASCAR’s showcase event.

Johnson easily raced to his series-best sixth victory of the season, winning Saturday night at Richmond International Raceway to shore up the top seed in the Chase for the championship. The defending Nextel Cup champion will start the 10-race title hunt on top of the standings and with the momentum of two consecutive wins to help him hold off 11 other challengers.

But NASCAR’s most popular driver won’t be one of them. Source: Johnson wins at Richmond; Junior fails to make Chase

Call Him Butter, Jimmie Johnson is on Another Roll

I mentioned this when Johnson won the last race in California, if Johnson gets on a roll, it’s gonna be bad news for everybody, and it appears he is in fact on a roll. He qualified in the second spot and times usually get better as the session goes on, especially if it is getting cooler, but he was over one second faster than second place Jeff Gordon. With Jeff Gordon qualifying second and Kyle Busch third, this gave Hendrick Motorsports the first three starting positions, Casey Mears, the other Hendrick entry, qualified 23rd.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., the only person who can still knock someone out of the chase, qualified 21st, behind his competition, Kurt Busch, who starts 14th and Kevin Harvick will start 13th. But, even if Earnhardt wins the race, Kevin can still clinch by finishing 32nd or better and Busch can still clinch his spot by finishing 36th or better, so, his chances are very, very slim, but anything can happen. Richmond is, statistically, Earnhardt’s best track, though, so it could possibly happen.

Oh, and believe it or not, this is Johnson’s first pole of the year.

“I figured out how to drive this track when we were here in the spring,” said Johnson, who outran Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kyle Busch to win in May. Busch qualified third Friday, giving Hendrick the top three spots in the field.

Gordon said it was clear early that Johnson had done something special. He was just the second car to make his run, and typically speeds get better as darkness falls.

Not this time.

Before making his laps, Gordon said he looked at what had happened so far and thought, “He must have put a really good lap down because nobody was close to him.” Source: HMS to start 1-2-3; Earnhardt Jr. to begin race 21st

Jimmie Johnson Wins Again

How good is to be Rick Hendrick right now? How about their sponsors? Hendrick Motorsports has accounted for 7 wins out of the last 8 races this season, all four of the COT races so far, Jeff Gordon has 2 wins, and Jimmie Johnson has four wins so far by himself. Jimmie has 3 more top fives; Gordon has 8 top fives in ten races so far this season. Lowes and Dupont have got to love this.

“Our team is in full stride, but this is a very circular sport,” said Chad Knaus, the winning crew chief. “You get your time at the top and you fall to some degree. What you’ve got to do is make sure when you are taking your time at the top, you don’t get too full of yourself that when it’s your turn to fall, it doesn’t break you apart.”

“It’s cyclical,” the defending Nextel Cup champion said. “You enjoy it while you’ve got it, but we know that somebody is going to figure something out. We’ll just hope that the valleys aren’t that low and the valley isn’t in the final 10.” Source: Johnson, HMS continue to dominate COT, in 2007

Overall I thought it was a pretty good race, Jeff Burton has finished poorly the last two races, dropping three spots in the points, with Johnson taking his place at second and Gordon still in front by 211. Here is how they finished:

1 4 48 Jimmie Johnson

Kevin Harvick Rolls at Richmond

Kevin Harvick swept the weekend at Richmond, winning the Chevy Rock & Roll 400 Nextel Cup race and the Emerson Radio 250 Busch series race. Quit a weekend for Harvick, you go Kevin, your going to help me win this Nascar race league I am in. Gordon finished a disapointing 31st, but still made the chase for the cup.

Here are the top 5:
1 29 Kevin Harvick
2 5 Kyle Busch
3 9 Kasey Kahne
4 22 Dave Blaney
5 6 Mark Martin

This is first time in NASCAR history that a weekend sweep has occurred on three consecutive weekends — Harvick at Richmond, Kasey Kahne at California and Matt Kenseth at Bristol — since the NASCAR Busch Series ran its first race in 1982.

Harry Gant was the first driver to post back-to-back weekend sweeps winning at Richmond and Dover in September 1991.
