Mayfield had a history of squabbling with teammates and blowing up bridges behind him as he left race teams. Both are common in NASCAR and other sports, too. But Mayfield’s life and career spiraled downward on May 9, 2009, when he was suspended indefinitely by NASCAR after he failed a drug test, which ESPN reported was methamphetamine.
