When Is A Sports Crowd of 180,000 Disappointing?

Mayfield Finds NASCAR Drug Test Trouble. Again

You probably remember the saga of Jeremy Mayfield, his bizarre positive test for methamphetamines and the ensuing follies. As sublimely entertaining as it would be to put a tweaker behind the wheel of a car pushing 190 mph, it’s probably dangerous, and he was suspended despite repeated denials of drug use.
