Former NASCAR driver Mayfield loses appeal

A US Circuit court of appeals has ruled against former NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield.

Mayfield was suspended in 2009 after failing a NASCAR mandated drug test. Mayfield denied using drugs and blamed the positive test on a combination of prescription and over the counter medications.

After his suspension Mayfield sued NASCAR, CEO Brian France and the company that conducted the drug testing alleging defamation, among other charges. A lower court dismissed the suit and Mayfield appealed. That appeal was denied Monday in the 4th US Circuit Court of appeals.MORE>>>
