1987 Kentucky Motor Speedway Rookie of the Year

Jeremy Allen Mayfield (born May 27, 1969) in Owensboro, Kentucky is a currently suspended NASCAR driver. Mayfield drove the #41 All Sport Toyota Camry in the Sprint Cup Series for his own team, Mayfield Motorsports. Currently he and his team are unsponsored. Jeremy has run paint schemes for sponsors Big Red soda and SmallSponsor.com. On May 9, 2009, Mayfield was suspended indefinitely as both owner and driver by NASCAR following what NASCAR said was a positive test for methamphetamine. A federal judge weighing the respective harms and evidence lifted the suspension temporarily on July 1, 2009. On July 15, 2009, it was revealed by NASCAR that Mayfield again tested positive for the second time of using methamphetamine. He allegedly failed a random drug test on July 6. On July 24, a federal appeals court overturned the previous injunction Mayfield had been awarded, leaving him suspended from the sport again.

Mayfield began racing in his hometown of Owensboro, racing BMX bicycles. He then proceeded to race go-karts at local short tracks, moving to Nashville Speedway USA at the age of 19. He soon went to work for Sadler Bros. Racing as a fabricator, and became their driver, winning Late Model Rookie of the Year at Kentucky Motor Speedway in 1987.
