I know what you mean. I have a Leather Matt Kenseth jacket that has DeWalt on it. It wasn't so bad when DeWalt dropped sponsorship but now that he will be driving for a totally different team and manufacturer the jacket is no longer relevant. Lol. I will still wear it no matter what. I have always liked Kenseth and will continue to pull for him despite my feelings about Toyota.

Did you say you're a Busch fan??? Uh oh..........

Jeremy Mayfield(taken from wikipedia):

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 was working as a delivery person in while waiting for word on his appeals. By 2011, tax officials in Catawba County, North Carolina were on the verge of foreclosing on Mayfield's 388-acre spread there because he owed $82,000 in back taxes.

On May 9, 2009, Mayfield was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR for violating NASCAR's substance abuse policy. Mayfield stated, "I believe that the combination of a prescribed medicine and an over the counter medicine reacted together and resulted in a positive drug test. My Doctor and I are working with both NASCAR consultant Dr. David Black and NASCAR to resolve this matter." Mayfield Motorsports named former Hall of Fame Racing driver J.J. Yeley as interim driver and Jeremy's wife Shana Mayfield as the interim owner.

David Black, whose company oversees NASCAR's testing program, disputed Mayfield's claims, stating, "What we have is a clear violation of policy. In my many years of experience, I have never seen a violation like this due to the combination of over-the-counter or prescription products." Owing to NASCAR policy, Dr. Black refused to specify the substance for which Mayfield tested positive, instead saying it was "a drug of concern."

However, at the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race the week after his suspension, Mayfield publicly stated that he had only taken two tablets of Claritin-D, and that he had never used any sort of illegal drug. His wife and crew chief backed these claims. Afterwards, criticism of NASCAR's testing policy became rampant, and several suggested that NASCAR's secrecy over Mayfield's results was politically motivated as to not smear the reputation of Claritin, who was a sponsor of Carl Edwards and NASCAR on Fox at the time. To this day, Mayfield refuses to enter NASCAR's rehabilitation program, and has alluded to legal action against NASCAR.

On June 9, ESPN.com stated that during the random drug screening on May 1 at Richmond International Raceway, Mayfield tested positive for methamphetamine.

On July 1, 2009, US District Court Judge Graham Mullen granted a temporary injunction, lifting Mayfield's suspension. Mullen concluded that the "likelihood of a false positive in this case is quite substantial." In granting the injunction, Mullen ruled that the "harm to Mr. Mayfield significantly outweighs the harm to NASCAR". However, even with the injunction, Mayfield was forced to sit out the 2009 Coke Zero 400 and 2009 Lifelock 400 for want of a sponsor.

On July 15, 2009, NASCAR stated that Mayfield had again tested positive for methamphetamine during testing on July 6, five days after his suspension was lifted. Mayfield's stepmother, Lisa Mayfield, stated that she had seen him use methamphetamine many times since 1998. Mayfield has refuted these allegations.

Despite two positive tests, Mayfield continues to deny ever using the drug, blaming the results on ingestion of the OTC drug Claritin D. Additionally, Mayfield took a drug test 40 minutes after NASCAR's, this time with an office not affiliated with NASCAR, and it was negative. A doctor from Florida stated that it was impossible for Mayfield to use the levels of methamphetamine NASCAR claimed he did, or else he would be dead or a chronic user.

According to an independent medical professional in Central Florida, the combination of medications cited by Mayfield has a 15% chance of a false positive being obtained.

A federal appeals court reversed Mayfield's injunction on July 24, 2009. On May 18, 2010, Mullen threw out Mayfield's suit, saying that Mayfield waived his right to sue NASCAR when he agreed to take part in NASCAR events.

On April 22, 2011 five dogs owned by Mayfield attacked a female mail carrier who was carrying a package to the front porch. She received several scratches and bite marks on her legs. The dogs were quarantined. On May 10, 2012, Mayfield was ordered to pay $1 million in the lawsuit of the pitbull attacks on the postal worker. The dogs were then euthanized.

On November 1, 2011 sheriff's deputies searched Mayfield's home in Catawba County after getting a tip that Mayfield and four accomplices were staging burglaries to support Mayfield's meth habit. Mayfield was taken into custody after deputies found 1.5 grams of meth in a safe. Authorities later found $100,000 worth of stolen goods in Mayfield's home. Among the recovered items were heavy machinery that had been reported stolen from two businesses in neighboring Lincoln County in late 2010 and early 2011, as well as audiovisual equipment that had been stolen from Red Bull Racing Team in nearby Mooresville in February 2011.

That is all that has happened that the media knows about, that's for all interested. As you can see he's been caught up in a bunch of crap since he was suspended.

^^^^^ Tweaker. He tried so hard to convince so many that he was clean and tben starts acting like one. If it looks like a duck............

Skate, sorry about the Busch confusion. I appologize because it would piss me off to be accused of being a Busch fan. Either one of them. Again it makes me smile when they are at the back of the pack or can't finish a race for whatever reason. I have also found that most of the Busch fans are just as annoying as the drivers. I sat next to one at Kansas Speedway in April and he more than proved my theory
