CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR has asked to move Jeremy Mayfield's challenge of his indefinite suspension to federal court.
The request comes a day before a Mecklenburg County Superior Court Judge was scheduled to hear arguments pertaining to Mayfield's suspension for failing a random drug test.
The veteran driver claims NASCAR did not follow its drug-testing policies and left Mayfield with no way to prove his innocence following his May 9 suspension.
NASCAR has not revealed what substance Mayfield tested positive for. His attorneys said in court last week he tested positive for amphetamines.
